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 bought as a present for my sister and she loves it
Lovely canvas given as a birthday present to someone who holidayed in St Ives during August
Beautiful picture, love this artist! Such simple pictures but makes you feel happy when you look at them! Love this one, so perfect for our hallway as we also have another one by Hannah Cole as well that matches perfectly!
Happy with all three canvases we purchased by Hannah Cole proudly displayed in our newly decorated bathroom the little border terriers depicted are extra special as we have our own border terrorist! Love all Hannah's work making our final choice was not easy ! Regards Karen
