About the Artist:
Hannah Allen is a quilter and fiber artist living in Lexington, Kentucky. Her most recent work “land of our Mothers”, documents Kentucky’s 120 counties with a large-scale quilt dyed with plants harvested by the artist from each of Kentucky’s counties. Formerly she acted as a Civic Artist in Residence working alongside the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government’s Department of Finance, an opportunity made possible by CivicLex and the National Endowment for The Arts. Having grown up in the Lexington art community as a visual art student at Lexington’s School for the Creative And Performing Arts, Hannah experienced a variety of mediums and from a young age, discovered a love of sewing and textile arts. After a long hiatus from art she re-discovered her love of sewing in 2018. In 2019, she was a part of the Rita’s Quilt project, contributing the embroidered Kentucky square. The quilt was displayed at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY in March 2020, and was featured on NPR, BBC, and Atlas Obscura. Hannah’s current work expresses the comfort of a handmade quilt, a reflection of place, and the unbridled joy of creative freedom.
