Artist makes therapeutic single-stroke paintings

Emerald Pellot
·2-min read

Hanna Lee Tidd is a painter whose specialty is continuous line art — meaning she creates all of her portraits in a single stroke.

Tidd’s drawings are simple but bold renditions of animals, cartoon characters and portraits. Tidd sells her portraits in the U.K. via her online shop, but she also posts super relaxing videos of her making art on Instagram.

“A little morning botanical for you,” she wrote in the caption of one post.

In the clip, she uses her paintbrush to draw a line spawning from the bottom center of the canvas and made leaves emerge from the single black stroke, bringing them to the top of the painting to create an elegant plant.

“It’s soothing,” one user commented.

“Love your confidence and the action on that brush,” another said.

Tidd showed off her ambidextrous talent in another post captioned, “Two sides to every story.”

As she holds a yellow marker in one hand and a black marker in the other, Tidd moves her hands together, each one mirroring the other’s movements. In two continuous lines, she makes a symmetrical portrait of a blushing woman.

“This is awesome! Have you been ambidextrous since you were young or did you teach yourself as an adult? My left-hand drawings are mental,” a person asked.

Tidd responded, “I’m not actually ambidextrous at all. I just really really really focused on my left hand and did it about a hundred times. Hehe, fake it until you make it!”

“I love this so damn much,” someone wrote.
