In August 2017 Hannah travelled to Kurdistan for an art project with Yezidi women who had escaped ISIS captivity. The purpose of the project was to use art as a powerful tool for advocacy.
These are the portraits Hannah painted upon her return. The use of gold leaf is to show the sacred value of these Yezidi women, in spite of all they have suffered at the hands of ISIS. It is symbolic of the restoration of dignity.
The paintings have been exhibited in the Houses of Parliament and DfID to advocate on their behalf.
