We are pleased to present in this issue of Gallery two inspirational young women artists, Hannah Evans and Jorja Scott. Both Hannah and Jorja are talented young artists in the early stages of their creative journey – a journey which is sure to produce work that will bring pleasure to the viewer (as they have already started to indicate with the work shown here). Below are some background details about them.
Hannah Evans has a rare genetic condition that causes learning difficulties and visual impairment. Despite this, at the age of fifteen she is a self-driven, competent artist. Although she can paint representationally she prefers a more abstract approach . She is inspired by lots of artists and from a young age has known what she likes. Favourites are Paul Klee and David Hockney, Picasso, Miro, Hundertwasser, all aboriginal art and the work of Scottish artists like Edgar, Phipps, Cherubini and Williamson. Colour is her world and inspiration. It is as if she lives in a rainbow and radiates joy, enthusiasm and energy. This comes through in her strong sensitivity to subtle colour differences.
