Hannah is an English interpretive portrait artist and illustrator based in London.
She captures women's inner selves by expressing their qualities, energies and emotions through a surreal expression of their hidden beauty.
Her dream is to reveal the 'authentic self' of the client by portraying their ‘self love’ and ‘unearthed beauty’ through her surreal expression of the woman. She empowers women to explore deeper elements within as she unleashes the key to the soul of immense power. Through a ‘soul session’ she will tap into the ‘authentic’ inner essence of the women to reveal these qualities through an interpretive portrait.
‘The Lotus rises from the mud, untouched and clean, to open into a magnificent flower high in the air.’
Her self realisation started when she embarked on a life changing trip and flew 10,553 miles to Sydney for a year. Her curiosity for spiritual being began as she started to look deep within the soul to find her ‘true self’. Much of her inspiration came from discovering ‘dramatic and theatrical’ organic forms within plants as they held conceptual meanings of what beauty was for her.
‘Awaken’ presents recent works by Hannah. The exhibition showcases a series of face illustrations portraying her own journey of emotions and ‘inner beauty’ as surreal interpretations. Alongside this, for the first time there will be a display of her original portraits of the real women she has worked with.
Join us at the Gallery Café on 5th January 2016 from 6pm to 8pm, for the opening of ‘Awaken’, an illustration exhibition by Hannah Dudley. The event will also include a pop up shop with limited edition prints and a chance to meet the artist.
The artist will be in the cafe every Tuesday after the opening, throughout January from 5-8pm if you would like to meet her and discover more behind her work or to arrange an interpretive portrait.
