Hanna Jaeun is a Brooklyn-based painter. She received a BFA in Apparel Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. After some soul-searching, she finally decided to pursue her dreams of becoming a painter. She now works with acrylics on wood panel. Drawing inspirations from religious paintings, puppetry, and her love of animals, her work explores the plight of animals. She uses animals and animal-human hybrids to explore themes of isolation, vulnerability, and the yearning to belong. She has had the opportunity to exhibit across the US, at events and galleries including, Beyond Eden Art Fair, SCOPE Art Fair at Miami BaselCotton Candy MachineArch Enemy Arts, and various other galleries.

There is a constant theme of alienation played out between my subject matter. I delve into this sense of not belonging, of feeling isolated from a community or one's own sense of self. I am intrigued by the Frankenstein definition of one's self by one's opposite, by the human versus the animal. My characters bring to life my desire to tell a story.
