Hannah Bearden explores a wide range of artistic mediums. She utilizes materials for both aesthetic and conceptual properties, not limiting herself to a specific medium. Bearden's work dances on the boundary of satire and awareness, by playfully conveying social differences. Bearden received a BFA in Sculpture from California State University, Chico in 2013. She has participated in several exhibitions and residencies including the Earthskin Creative Arts Residency in Murawai, New Zealand. Bearden was awarded a Research and Creativity grant to further pursue her exploration in multi-disciplinary arts. She is an active member of the Magnetic North studio in Portland Oregon. Bearden will be taking residence at the YZ Creative Arts Residency in the Shanxi Provence of China in the Fall of 2018.
