Catalyst is a YoungShand creative content series, exploring the methods and drive of creative people and how these manifest in their practices.

This first episode features Hannah Jensen an Auckland based artist specialising in the unique method of carving layered paint to reveal her subjects beneath.

Having spent time in Africa on game reserves, Jensen has observed the large animals she’s inspired by in the wild. Her representations are beautifully stylised pieces that also give an insight and opinion on the animals and our relationships with them.

Here she talks about the motivations that propel her work, along with the inspiration and experience she draws upon.
