Artwork by Talented Teenage Artist Hannah Evans on Show



The latest exhibition of art by disabled teenager Hannah Evans opens on Friday (February 23) in Scotland.


Hannah, who has been creating art since she was three years old, is partially sighted, autistic, and has specific learning and communication disabilities.


The 17-year-old’s art is a realm of imagination and creativity. She paints in acrylic and watercolour; sculpts in plastic, sand, and clay; and creates photographs and prints, all in unconventional and unique ways.


“At first I just dismissed Hannah’s art as kid’s paintings,” says Carol, Hannah’s mum.

“But through my late dad’s mentoring and promotion of Hannah’s art, I finally get it and see the talent he saw in her. He said she was the ‘Lewis Capaldi’ of the art world. She never ceases to amaze me with what she produces.”



However, creating art with low vision is not without its difficulties.


“She does struggle with conventional drawing and due to her learning disabilities, she always needs constant supervision in her art even although she does it all herself,” added Carol.


“But she sees colour and the world differently which only adds a new dimension to her art.”

Hannah, the youngest professional member of the Scottish Artist Union, already has three group exhibitions and three large solo shows under her belt.


Her latest upcoming exhibition at Cass Art in Glasgow, ‘My Colour Expression’, will feature her river series, created through manipulating flowing paint.
