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…”
Beautiful relaxing canvas, just a lovely amount of colour to lift any room. This canvas will make you smile!
Apsolutley love Hannah Coles work... reminds me of many a holiday in Cornwall. Love the colours and the fun in every picture along with the little dog... will enjoy many years of looking at them hanging in my living room!
Good quality canvas
I love this canvas! We have a sea themed bedroom and it looks brilliant against the soft coffee background. It reminds me of lovely days spent on the beach in Cornwall.
Beautiful, reminds me of lovely, sunny Cornwall.
