Painter, designer and printmaker, born in Bath, Somerset. She studied at the School of Art there, after initial education in England and Germany, then at Royal College of Art and in Vienna. She eventually returned to live in the West Country, finally settling at Clevedon, Somerset, in a house and studio built to her own design. Showed mainly in that area. Exhibitions included RA, Leicester and Redfern Galleries, Jack Bilbo’s Modern Art Gallery, and Foyles Gallery; in the 1950s and 1960s she had a series of one-man shows, including Minerva Gallery, Bath, and Osiris Gallery, Oxford, with a retrospective at RWA, Bristol, 1960. Michael Wright Fine Art, Bristol, gave Hatt a show in 1998. A pen portrait of her is included in Hubert Nicholson’s 1941 autobiography Half My Days and Nights.
