co-founder, lead artist
Hello! I'm Hannah, one of the co-founders of dprture. I am the artist who creates most of the look and feel of dprture's products. Like many people, I started to realize that being an artist was my calling at a fairly young age.
When I was in fifth grade, I took my first art class and discovered that it was something I enjoyed. In this class, I was assigned projects that were much more challenging than the typical fifth grader would be given. My teacher saw that I had a gift, and wanted me to advance in it. However, after that year I took a break from creating art.
I didn't pick up art again until about a year ago. I was on Christmas break from college, and I decided to give it another shot because I had a lot of free time. I would spend at least two hours every day working on a project.
It didn't take long for my art to gain attention. Using Instagram, I began to post my work, and I immediately had people telling me that I should sell my work. At first I didn't really listen to these comments because I did not feel like my work was on that level. I also did not want to just sell my art. Art is my way of expressing myself so if I were to sell it I wanted there to be a very good reason...and boom dprture.
