Hannah Woleslagle recently relocated to Mexico Beach for a little bit of sunshine and a lot of new beginnings.

The Ormond Beach transplant came to the area to be with her family while searching for new inspiration for her acrylic, colored pencil and graphite works of art.

Having only been in town a few weeks, she already has her studio set up on the second floor of the Centennial Bank building in Port St. Joe.

“I love the area,” said Woleslagle. “The people are kind and genuine and it’s nice to have a sense of community.”

The part-time artist, who draws portraits, original pieces, design and caricatures, is anxious to make her mark on the local art scene in order to “connect to people on another level.”

She views her work as a combination of realism, surrealism and portraiture and is inspired by the works of Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dali and Michelangelo.

“The Sistine Chapel is incredible,” said the artist. “It shows the beauty of realism.”
