Did you know that North Manchester is home to countless talented artists? For example, Michele Graham is an accomplished photographer, Susan Ring paints beautiful landscapes, Carrie Sautter sells hand-made greeting cards at One World Handcrafts, and Hannah Burnworth creates mixed media collage art pieces. MMS is featuring our unique local artisans in a new “Meet the Artist” web series. This week, visit MMS’ website "Local Flavor" menu tab to find out what inspires Hannah Burnworth’s whimsical style, and how she traveled halfway around the world to discover her first love.
