About

Hannah Nance Portrait

I’m an artist and screenprinter based in Los Angeles. I like to make work by hand that is feminine, graphic, colloquial, personal, kitsch, sometimes coarse and sometimes saccharine.
As a staunch millennial, I’m influenced by the cartoons of the 1990s, pop media, zine and diy culture, internet culture, punk and rap lyrics, feelings, body positivity, sex positivity, and contemporary slang and vernacular. As a practitioner of manual art processes, I find inspiration in the hand-painted signage of Los Angeles, early American packaging and advertising, 1940s Hollywood aesthetics, vintage comics, kitsch of all kinds, and illustrative folk art. I love exploring the contrast of modern language and attitudes merged with a classic or timeless aesthetic. I self-identify as a combination of Lucille Ball and Daria Morgendorffer.
