Hannah is a pet, equine and wildlife artist based in Somerset, UK. Her work strives to capture the character of her subjects, with the aim of representing realism whilst still looking like a work of pencil art.
Her art career officially started back in 2014 when she accepted commissions for graphite human portraits but was then put on hold for a good few years whilst she and her husband Pete started their family and she studied for her accounting qualification.
She started to get back into drawing after a good friend had been asking for a portrait of her dog, and was gifted a portrait as a thank you gift for acting as maid of honour at the couples wedding.
This reignited Hannah’s passion for drawing and she realised how much she loved drawing animals! She often speaks of her gratitude to her friend for getting her back into art by requesting a portrait.
Hannah now solely draws animals for commission and wildlife pieces for sale – including domestic, wild, equine, fluffy, scaly!
Her favourite part has to be seeing the joy her work brings to her clients when they see their piece come to life. She is often commissioned for commemorative portraits and although this is very sad, knowing that she can bring a tiny amount of happiness at such an awful time really does make the long hours so worth while.
Hannah tells us she is very excited to grow her art business and see where she will take it in the future.
