Printmaker, Illustrator, and Fiber Artist
Hannah Huntley was raised in Reno, Nevada. Huntley received her Bachelor of Fine Art at the University of Nevada, Reno in 2019. Raised in the desert she has deeply connected to the landscape as well as western culture and iconography. Huntley’s work revolves around body image, societal gender roles, and beauty in the shape of insects, cowboys, or personified inanimate objects. She uses nostalgic narratives and imagery in order to relate and connect with a wide audience. Huntley’s main goal is to change the way people view their insecurities and differences.
Huntley and several other local printmakers opened Laika Press, a non-profit community print shop in Reno in December of 2017 in an attempt to expand Reno’s communal art scene and allow the general public to experience printmaking outside of academia.
