After graduating from Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY, with a BA in Fine Arts, then a quick stint in the broadcasting department at the Hill Holliday Ad agency in Boston, Hannah was invited to study drawing and painting at the Ives Gammell Atelier on Newbury St in Boston, MA,. The Gammell atelier taught in the tradition of the historical Boston School, an influential group of American master painters from the turn of the 19th century who were inspired by the European Impressionists way of seeing color, while maintaining a more classical style of drawing in their paintings. It was at the Gammell atelier that Hannah met her artist husband, Sam Vokey (www.samvokey.com ).
After leaving the Gammell atelier, Hannah continued her art studies at the Paul Ingbretson Atelier in Framingham, MA , (now located in Lowell, MA ) where she focused on still lifes and portraiture. (www.http://studio.ingbretson.com).
Occasionally, Hannah merges her passion and love for painting with her love for surfing. Those can be viewed under the Surf Art section.
