Hannah Faith Yata is half Japanese and was born in a small town in Georgia. She grew up with a deep love for nature and animals. In her paintings, Yata seeks to interweave the parallels of the unconscious with the struggle of the natural environment and how it relates to views regarding the body of the woman and that of nature.
