During August 2017 Hannah travelled to Kurdistan to organize an art project for a group of Yezidi women who have escaped ISIS captivity. These are the portraits Hannah painted upon her return.
'For these portraits I have used the luminous early Renaissance egg tempera technique. The use of gold leaf is to show the sacred of these Yezidi women, in spite of all they have suffered at the hands of ISIS.' Hannah Rose Thomas
Hannah's portraits will be exhibited in the Houses of Parliament the week beginning 26th March 2018, to advocate on behalf of the Yezidi community.
