About Me

Hello! I'm Hannah – a freelance illustrator based in Edinburgh. 

Born and brought up in London, I was raised, amongst others, on the wonderful Roald Dahl, John Burningham, Judith Kerr and Quentin Blake – not to mention the stories of my eccentric Austrian grandmother.

Back in 2010 – after studying art and languages at Edinburgh University – I relocated to the creative capital of Berlin. Upping sticks to Kreuzberg was the inspirational tonic that led me to pursue my lifelong passion for illustration as a career.

Since then I have illustrated for clients including Otter-Barry Books, Floreat Education and ActionAid.

Nowadays I live and work in sunny Leith, where my studio is filled with inks, paints and characters all coming to life.
