Hannah’s portraits of Yezidi, Rohingya and Nigerian women are a visual testimony not only of war and injustice but also of humanity, dignity and resilience. Her striking use of religious symbolism and gold leaf communicate the sacred value of every individual regardless of gender, race or religion. Through her paintings Hannah hopes to empower the women’s voices to be heard and highlight the issue of sexual violence and the persecution of religious and ethnic minorities.
