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 ordered this canvas and it was delivered very quickly. Bought it for my dad for his birthday to remind him of the lovely holidays he spent in St Ives with my mum. He loved it.
I ordered this canvas art at the end of August and it has still not been delivered. I have rang customer services multiple times and have been told I will be contacted about a new canvas being sent out and I have received no contact since. I am really upset as this was meant to be a birthday present for my mum and the money was taken out of my account very quickly but I have not had anything delivered for months. I am really disappointed as I absolutely love visiting the Whistlefish store in St Ives but I have not received the same quality customer service online or on the phone.
Beautiful canvas. I bought myself a large one a while ago. It was much admired by a family member so this one is her Christmas present.
I ordered this canvas for my daughter who was visiting from Australia and made particular arrangements by phone, with you, to have it delivered on a particular day. I phoned to ask for this to happen and was assured it would arrive on the day I requested. The apron was also to go with this gift. Sadly, somehow, the despatch from you didn't happen when I asked for it, so after I phoned to complain, it arrived two days later. That meant we had to stay in to wait for it, and that meant we could not go out and do something we particularly wanted to do on that day. Nothing wrong with the product which is beautiful - but something went badly wrong with the delivery.
