Hannah is a British director, animator and illustrator from London. She graduated with an MA in animation from the Royal College of Art in 2014.

She has enjoyed much success with her films screening worldwide at festivals including official selection for SXSW, Tribeca, Annecy Festival, LIAF, MONSTRA, and Rooftop Films. 

Hannah's body of work across both illustration and animation demonstrates an empathic study of a range of different subject matters. She works in 2D digital animation, using a hand drawn frame by frame process to create subtle abstract narratives using textured and layered drawings. 

She is available for both animation and illustration projects.
