New Website Crowning

Quintessence, ©2011, 30" x 30," on

As I've learned to work with the site myself--WordPress book at hand and Google at my fingertips, I've begun to experience a pride similar to what I felt as a young mother.

As they did then, the first few snafus catch me by surprise--like getting caught without extra diapers or wipes in public; but with practice, I've learned how to problem solve. And, like reminding a small child over and over again to pick up their toys, I've tussled with the never-ending chore of cleaning up errant links, and misbehaving formatting.

As with children, there is no stasis, no resting point where the process is over. As I introduce my website, I see it as a work in progress, something that has come a long way, but will continue to develop and grow as I do.

Without further ado, let me introduce my website:  Hannah Klaus Hunter, Fine Artist, Textile and Paper Collage 

I invite you to visit, to explore the different pages and I welcome your thoughts and observations. In a bit, I'll begin writing all my posts on the WordPress site, but I'm not quite there yet. More on that later.


  1. It's gorgeous Hannah! You must feel so proud. Looking forward to watching it - and you - develop!

  2. I loved wandering through your home away from home, enjoyed your statement, wallowed in all the glorious colors ..... and am intrigued by Your Foot is no Longer Here. Your website is looking so professional and it's very easy to get into. Congrats Hannah!

    1. Thank you Patty. I do feel proud. And I think there's something wonderful about being older (no diapers to carry!) and learning whole new swathes of material.

      Robyn--I take that as a high compliment. I know you walked the walk with your Weebly site...Indeed there is a story behind that "Your Foot..."; it refers to a young Indian girl I had the pleasure of working with and who was an amazing artist and artisan.

  3. Hi Hannah,

    I'm heading over to your new baby! Congratulations on your hard work.

    Also, really love the exuberance of your piece, Quintessence.

  4. Congratulations on your website- it looks great! Your work is gorgeous, rich in pattern, color and symbolism. I'd say your way of coping with the empty nest is much better than mine- I got three dogs!

  5. Grazie mille Maddy! And the name for Quintessence came from its birth order in a series of quilts...

    Sharmon--Thank you for your words--I'm still working on the coping mechanisms too. Our cat is getting a lot more loving!
