Hannah Stevens Allen was born in Santa Barbara, California, where she lived until moving to Norton Massachusetts to attend Wheaton College. Though she missed the sunny Pacific and the delicious avocados it provided, Hannah happily stayed in New England to earn her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art in May 2012. While studying abroad in Ireland at the Burren College of Art, Hannah discovered her love for oils and chose to explore the medium in her Senior Arts Exhibition at Wheaton. She expanded and developed her technique and style by illustrating her friends’ vibrant personalities in a series of oil paintings she titled “Room 101″.
Hannah now continues her exploration of texture in oils from her studio garage in California.
