About Hatty Butler

My work revolves around people; capturing their emotions, experiences and struggles. My aim is to convey these feelings via contemporary art, creating dynamic, vivid images. My love for texture, method and material helps me capture these emotions. I am passionate about using my art to celebrate unique and interesting people. Highlighting and embracing those who may normally be overlooked or criticised for being different. We live in a society where the abnormal is laughed upon and my aim is to alter these outdated views. Art can be the most innovative and compelling form of providing change within our society.
