Hannah achieves the specific effect of her work by applying layers of paint to board
before employing printmaking techniques such as intaglio, etching and carving to create thematic content.
The result is a detailed image rendered in negative relief that emphasises the texture
and tonal variations between paint colours in a typographical manner.
Using anywhere between 25-75 layers of paint and up to 5 different colours,
Jensen calculates the depth of each layer to provide the necessary variations
of colour, texture and shadow in the work.
