meet the artist

Hanks Gallery owner and artist, Claudine Hanks, is a self-taught abstract painter whose works represent freedom and expression.

Claudine was born in Buckinghamshire, where she still lives and has her studio and art gallery. During her childhood she always loved to draw and paint. She took this passion through her school years and gained qualifications in art and design and textiles. In the years to come her passion for creativity continued, but moved into the digital world. She became a graphic designer and is now the proud owner of her own design and marketing agency – Blooberry Creative.

Claudine’s love of painting reimerged in 2019 when she painted some canvasses for her new home. She realised that when she was painting she could escape and lose herself completely in the moment – a feeling she hadn’t experienced for many years.

Her works today represent four years of experimentation with acrylics and mixed-medium materials. She is constantly evolving her creative ideas and styles. Whatever your requirements she’ll come up with a solution that fits your space perfectly.

It’s always been my dream to own an art gallery and exhibit my own creations. I love what I do and I don’t think you can ask for more than that. And, knowing that people love my work too, well that’s simply ... amazing. I can't wait to welcome you in to my gallery.
