Hannah Demma is an avid outdoorswoman, outdoor educator, and lifelong Nebraskan. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2017, and her Master of Fine Arts in the Spring of 2022 with an emphasis on Printmaking and Papermaking. Her mixed-media approach to art speaks to aspects of science and nature both familiar and strange, and mines the environment for inspiration, examining the intersection of the imaginative and the biological, of the creative and the empirical. Her process stirs the imagination and sparks excitement for exploration and adventure. 

In 2018 Hannah received the Kimmel Foundation Emerging Artist Award, and a Mayor’s Art Award. She completed an artist residency at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center in Nebraska City, and served as a visiting artist at Maxey Elementary School. Hannah’s passion for art education has taken her to Lincoln, Montana where she led the education programing for an outdoor sculpture park, Blackfoot Pathways Sculpture in the Wild. Hannah has served as coordinator for the Cedar Point Biological Station Art Program since 2017. In 2021 Hannah received the Dan and Barbara Howard Creative Achievement Award, and in 2022 she was awarded the Francis William Vreeland Award in Art. After receiving an Emerging Artist Scholarship for the 2022 Lincoln Arts Festival, she was awarded Best in Show.

In addition to teaching, Hannah has maintained a busy studio practice and exhibition schedule and looks forward to expanding her skill set to include new mediums and collaborations.
