Biography

A surreal life for a surreal artist. Hannah Keats is based in Tallahassee, Florida, where she focuses on creating biomorphic and realistic paintings inspired by nature and her environmental activism. Hannah Keats is currently attending Florida State University for her Masters in Fine Art for Studio Art. This is her first semester in graduate school and she is diving deeper into how we connect to the natural world through paintings.

 

Beyond her love of painting and nature, Keats is also active in Northeast Florida’s up-and-coming art scene. She has exhibited art in a number of galleries and shows in

Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Cape Canaveral, Tampa, Tallahassee, and Melbourne, Florida. Recently, Keats was invited to participate in a show at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Jacksonville. The show she is currently in there is a retrospective of alumni who graduated from the University of North Florida between 1974 and 2020. Another accolade that Keats recently received was a full tuition waiver, stipend, and graduate assistantship to attend Florida State University for her MFA. When Keats is not in class or working in her studio, she can frequently be seen mountain biking, rock climbing, or plein-air painting around Tallahassee.
