When she was young, Hanna's father moved the family to the Bay Area. After a successful 50-year career in the women's fashion world, Hanna retired and turned her passions for fashion drawing into a talent for painting landscapes.

" Chief Seattle, 1855 When in the first of morning's warming light, I hear the soft and cadenced coos of doves, I try to imitate with all my might Their peaceful, plaintive songs to all their loves. And when in twilight's cooling, playful breeze, I hear the trilling of the warbling bird, Whose soulful music wafts throughout the trees, I know to mimic him would be absurd. And then, again, the first of darkest night Brings out the owls with their hollow whos, And those, I've mimicked absolutely right, Because they never know whose who is whose.
