Profile Picture
Hannah is a writer and researcher currently completing her final year in Visual and Critical Studies at OCAD University. She was born in Vancouver (on Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh lands) and raised in Toronto/Tkaranto (lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit, Anishnabeg, Chippewa, Haudenosaunee and Wendat peoples). Her research interests include how identity and power can be reclaimed through art, explorations of the reciprocal relationship between nature and humanity, history painting and the sublime, among so much more. Her experiences in her studies, work and other areas of life have allowed her to further develop these passions, and she hopes to pursue them at the graduate level in the future.
