Hannah Payette Peterson is originally from Boston, USA, and lived in Chile and Spain before recently moving to Berlin. She is a biologist and an artist, and her paintings are very much inspired by her love of science (especially biology and astronomy) and science fiction. Her pop-surrealist style, developed with influence from artists such as Rene Magritte and magical realist literature, allows her to mix several ideas and themes into one painting to create dreamlike worlds.
