About The Artist


Hannah Read is a Colchester-born artist who now lives local to Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex. She studied Art & Design to A level at The Girls High in Colchester and since then has carried on her passion for art by painting and drawing as a part-time artist.

Although she practices most forms of media, she specialises in oil and acrylic paintings and pen and pencil drawings. Some of her influences include Vincent Van Gogh, Francis Bacon, Leonid Afremov, and Frida Kahlo, as well as Sir Richard Stone, who she was lucky enough to attend two painting masterclasses with throughout her school years.

Hannah enjoys painting and drawing a variety of different subjects, and finds her photography hobby a great accompaniment to her artistic works.
