"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." Vincent Van Gogh
Almost as compelling as painting, to me, is teaching. In truth it is not teaching, but mentoring; guiding someone to find their own direction, to let go and trust their inner voice. Often it is simply reassuring the student that - despite what their fifth grade teacher said, they CAN do it!
Hannah Ineson’s award-winning watercolor and oil paintings have been shown in many locations throughout New England and Florida, where she also teaches watercolor journaling.
During the winter season, she works and resides in Southwest Florida. She is an instructor at the Marco Island Center for the Arts, and was Artist in Residence in the Everglades Big Cypress National Preserve. Three solo shows for the Collier County Museum system over the past decade culminated in a three month exhibit in the main gallery of the Marco Island Historical Museum in fall, 2013. Her Florida work often features Everglades paintings inspired by Marjorie Stoneman Douglas’ book, Everglades, River of Grass.
Her card and print designs have been marketed through the Everglades National Park, LL Bean and many other retail outlets. She has taught watercolor workshops in Mexico for Elderhostel. Ineson is a Member of the Pemaquid Art Gallery in New Harbor, the oldest continuously operating gallery in Maine, and teaches at her studio in Damariscotta during the summer.
