Hannah K. Edwards is a Minnesotan artist currently living in Moorhead, Minnesota. They are attending Minnesota State University Moorhead, in pursuit of their B.F.As in Art Education and Studio Arts. Edwards also freelances as a face painter for local community organizations. When not making art they are an advocate for inclusive classrooms and equity for lgbtq+ youth, having spoken at multiple student trainings as well as a national conference for multicultural education (NAME, 2019).
The inspiration for “Bait” was common trope of a pit covered in leaves that more often than not a protagonist at some point will fall into. The spark and the name for this piece was taken from the 2019 prompts for INKtober. INKtober is a yearly challenge for artists to create a work every day of the month of October based on prompts released by the creator of the challenge. Edwards used traditional ink and a dip pen on a recycled hand bound sketchbook to create “Bait.”
