"Individuality Is Freedom Lived"



“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”

― Leonardo da Vinci


‘A woman is like a teabag, you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.’ 

- Eleanor Roosevelt
Beauty has a lot to do with character🟥

Art enables us to have an experience we can have from no other source. 

Through this experience we discover the range & variety of what we are capable of feeling ▪️

“Individuality is freedom lived”

Individualism is believing in individuality, diversity and freedom over authority and conformity.  Individualism emphasises the independence and uniqueness of different people. 

Naturally it supports equal rights for all ethnicities, genders & sexual orientations.  Yet some individualists support selfishness, social inequality, or the destruction of social institutions. 

Perhaps the biggest difference among views of individualism is whether they promote concern only for oneself, or for all individuals

Thank you to everyone who came down and supported me today at the beautiful new gallery in Harpenden!!! @molasseshouse_art
The moment Marli met ‘Marli’ for the first time 💕

With all my abstract portraiture paintings, every lady I paint is someone who has inspired me in some way so far in my life. Each painting has such a huge story behind 🙏🏼

This was the description on the plaque next her:


Hannah has dedicated this piece to Marli, who she has known over ten years. Marli is one of the strongest individuals she knows who always responds with kindness and compassion. She is a beacon of positivity who has no idea how inspiring she is to so many people.

In this painting, Hannah wanted to capture her strength, calmness and obviously her undeniable beauty.

‘Fiery Soul’, 100cm x 100cm

For those who met me at START - Do you remember this beautiful ladies story? 

The award for the most particular when it comes to lighting…🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

The three main factors that were considered in the placement of the black square series…the position of the viewer, the position of the artwork viewed and the position of the multiple lighting units around the room to bring my paintings of light to life!

Can you see how the darkness creates volume and depth? 

The darkness highlights as much as the light. Dark against light, and light against dark ⬛️▪️⬛️▪️▪️⬛️▪️⬛️⬛️

‘Dix’, 100cm x 100cm, Acrylic on Canvas
Thank you START for having me, what a week! My paintings are now being sent to their new collectors all over the 🌎 

Here’s a couple of shots from the wall which featured my paintings of light/the black square series.  I called this wall ‘Chiaroscuro’ which in Italian quite literally means ‘light-dark’ ⬛️◼️⬛️◼️⬛️▪️

Big love to everyone who fully immersed themselves by moving & grooving to experience the full transformation of light at all angles, there was a lot of squatting all week!
