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…”
Great value.Beautiful picture as usual by Hannah Cole.Great service from Whistlefish and prompt delivery.
I purchased this canvas, together with 2 others, primarily for a childs bedroom, they are great holiday pictures. with dogs and beach huts etc, all the things children like to see, and just the right size to be able to place them side by side on the wall in quite a small room. The special offer of "purchase 3 for the price of 2" was also an incentive.
