Art by Hannah Mortensen
Hannah Wertz Mortensen was born and raised in Salem, Oregon, earned a BFA in Studio Art from Brigham Young University in Utah, and currently resides in Cache Valley, Utah with her husband and three girls. Hannah’s work explores her personal interactions with nature using both large and small scale paintings to capture the movement and intimacy of these experiences. Her recent paintings explore waterscapes with figures of birds in flight. Themes of the work include migration, the connection between identity and place, and using art as a tool of discovery.
