Hana is principally a draughtsman and has been doing so from a young age, however in recent years her practice has begun to morph with aspects of both 3D and 4D forms including mediums of painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking and light installation. Her artistic focus falls along the connection of angular tessellation’s, shadow, and light, and the way these aspects interrelate to change an audiences perception of an object.
