In my life art has been fit in around the edges, a tiny sketchbook and a stolen moment in the rigging of a sailing ship, or a thick roll of paper held open by my bare feet in the sand.  I have taught and danced, researched and adventured from Ketchikan to Cape Horn. Currently snug in Washington’s Methow Valley, I carve out the pieces of those days that need to be saved for other eyes, and find new inspiration in treasures close to home.

Most of my artwork is done with an X-acto blade and black sheets of paper. I strive towards artwork and projects that mix art, natural, history and education in a way that helps to foster sense of place and an appreciation for our natural world.

I can often be found in my studio at the wonderful  Twispworks campus in Twisp, Washington.  Stop in for a visit and see what projects I’ve got on the table.  You can also follow me on instagram @hannahviano.

  1. Hi Hannah – thank you again for spending time with both of my daughters at the Children’s Museum in Portland on your 1st day of “Resident Artist” exhibit. They loved their time with you, especially my 1 year old, Savannah. She still asks me to draw “fishes” and you taught me how too 🙂 I just saw that the Children’s Museum used a photo of you and Savannah in their recent newsletter. It’s precious and I cannot wait to share it with her when she’s grown! Warmest regards.
