  • Biography

    Thank you for taking the time to look at my Artfinder page.

    My name is Hannah Bruce. I am a professional and award winning artist from Woking, Surrey, England. 

    Since 2014, I have been creating original artwork from my home studio in a range of mediums, primarily oils, resin, ink and pastels and I sell my work all over the world. If you are interested in commissioning me to create something specifically for you then please do let me know.

    Prominence

    My work continues to be recognised both nationally and locally through gallery exhibitions, competition wins and industry recognition. I am currently a featured artist in the Artist & Illustrators (Magazine) 2019 Calendar for my 2018 acrylic work ‘Crabbing, BritishSeaside’. Please see Artist Awards section for a list of my most recent successes and notable events.

    My canvas Art is stamped in Wax with the Bruce Family Seal on the reverse - we are part of the Robert the Bruce Clan from Scottish 1200's heritage. This helps to authenticate the work for the future.
