Ayn Hanna

"I am a mark maker. I love to draw, map, and organize thoughts, plans, spaces, and the world around me. Trained as a printmaker, I am intrigued by the endless variety of lines, textures, and surfaces that can be achieved in textiles."

Ayn Hanna is inspired by the many systems that exist for mapping and organizing ideas, stories, data, and places. She enjoys the overlaps that exist between art and science (shapes, models, diagrams, formulas, patterns, etc.). She is also fascinated by connectors and connections. Her work combines imagery, personal symbols, and text to record memories and stories of places and experiences.

Ayn Hanna combines her own hand-dyed fabrics with surface design techniques including dye drawing, discharging, and screen printing. She creates art cloth that becomes the raw material for her pillows and scarves. She uses layers of fabric combined with thread drawings to develop texture and line in her abstract mixed media textile paintings.

Ayn Hanna earned her MFA in printmaking and sculpture from Colorado State University in 1990 and has been working with textiles since 2005. She currently lives in Fort Collins, CO. She exhibits her work across the country at art galleries and craft shows, including the American Craft Council Shows in Baltimore and St. Paul and the SOFA Chicago Show.
