Hello everyone, today I thought it would be nice to introduce to you in her own words the lovely artist behind the Crafts and Me beautiful Hannah Lynn stamps.
Hannah Lynn’s paintings take us from mundane to magical through the eyes of her mythical, serene, and colorful female characters. She enjoys creating all kinds of animation style creatures, animals, and scenery in a mixed media of watercolor pencil and ink, with a dab of acrylic in some. She has a special affection for mermaids, which are her most recognizable trademark.
Hannah is a self-taught American artist born in 1979 in Southern California and raised in Sacramento, California. She has had a deep affection for art as far back as grade school and was often found coloring, drawing, reading and writing through her younger years. Even in her earliest works of art you will find animation style characters and a focus on the female eye.
She embarked on her artistic career in late 2006. Popularity of Hannah’s artwork has grown quickly and her work can be found in various personal collections from all around the world, including the US and Canada, Mexico, the UK, Germany, New Zealand, France, and Australia to name a few.
Her paintings are meticulous and beautifully detailed, and take a lot of time and attention to complete, even though some appear to be simple in design. The most common compliments Hannah receives about her art are regarding her excellent use of color and the expressions on her female faces; specifically the eyes. Many people have commented that Hannah's art brings a special joy to their hearts, and that it has even helped them through some very difficult times in their lives. She values her collectors tremendously, often making new friends of them, and prides herself on first class customer service. "I am so thankful for all my collectors and fans; they are the reason that I can use my talent to bring joy to others. Without them, I wouldn't be able to dedicate my life to my art."
Aside from painting in her expert media, Hannah enjoys painting with acrylics and crafting. When she is not painting, she loves spending time with her husband and two little girls. Camping, boating, cooking, decorating, traveling, reading, and going to the movies are a few of their favorite family adventures. She also enjoys singing on the music team with her church and spending time with friends over coffee. She currently works out of her home studio in the beautiful city of Idaho Falls, Idaho.
If you would like to leave Hannah a comment that would be lovely, I am sure she would love to read them.
