About the Artist: Hannah Allen is a quilter and artist based out of Lexington, Kentucky. Her work expresses the geography of craft, the joy of creative freedom, and the nostalgia of traditional art. Her past work has documented the plant biodiversity of Kentucky's 120 counties in a naturally dyed quilt using plants harvested from each county. Through her former role as an Artist In Residence for her hometown of Lexington, Kentucky, she creatively communicated the importance and impact of the town's Finance Department through non-traditional quilts.
