Hannah Delightful Wheeler is a British painter with Swiss heritage, working between the UK and Switzerland. 

Hannah's artwork has been influenced by a bohemian upbringing and an alternative education. Being brought up on the North Devon coastline in an isolated old cottage without the distractions of modern life made drawing by candlelight her favourite past-time. Living simply and without electricity helped develop an overactive imagination and a fascination with dark corners.

Painting was temporarily replaced with photography whilst starting a family. She worked in a photographic studio subsequently refining her own visual and conceptual work that emerged through portraits, band artwork and creative photography.

Hannah started painting again in 2010 experimenting with mixed media, acrylics and oils on a variety of surfaces. She now enjoys painting high contrast narrative work on wooden panels, Using literature or music as a starting point, her artwork is often built around impressions or phrases from favourite books and songs.

 

Hannah has a studio in Bude on the North Cornwall coast and is available for exhibitions and by commission.
