Hannah Charlton creates medieval style illuminated manuscripts, re-creating a historical art form with modern materials and themes. In 2012 she completed an internship at the Grünewald Guild art retreat center in Plain, WA, where she learned about traditional arts like icon writing, stained glass, and calligraphy. In 2019 she started teaching illuminated manuscript workshops at schools, libraries, and retreat centers.

Hannah’s current series is based on the 15th century The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan, a collection of famous women in history. Each piece features two to four ladies, from tragic saints to warrior queens. Hannah received her first grant for The Book of the City of Ladies series in 2020 through Spokane Arts.

Her work has been featured in the Spokane Art School Gallery and the Terrain Gallery in Spokane, WA, and several pieces are in Whitworth University’s Permanent Collection.
