Hannah grew up in North Devon, and is now based in Brighton.
She graduated from the University of Brighton in 1994 with a degree in Illustration, and worked in illustration for several years, before starting to exhibit her paintings in their own right.
Now a mum of two, she paints full time from her loft studio in Brighton. She is inspired by her frequent travels to the West Country, as well as the everyday seaside walks around Brighton and beyond. Her paintings depict the charm of Cornish harbours and bring back happy memories of beachside holidays, and her distinctive style is instantly recognisable - (especially with the ever-present wistful dog gazing out to sea! ) She says “people always ask me if that’s my dog in the paintings - sadly not! But my son is desperate for a dog so maybe one day soon…”
I first visited Whistlefish last year on my trip to Cornwall. Whilst there I purchased a picture tote bag and cushions. I just love them and smile each time I look at them. The tote bag is large and the pictures are just so beautiful and warming.
Great size bag, lovely colour & quality.

My daughter loved the bag and said it will be very useful. She has a small child (and a husband!) so there is always need for bags. She also loves the tea towels you make.
Holds loads and makes me feel happy!
