Society of Equestrian Artists – The Cuneo Medal Exhibition
Hannah was born in rural Exmoor in 1976. The surrounding area inspired her love of animals and the countryside and from an early age it was her ambition to become a Vet. However, it wasn’t to be, and in 1995 she moved to Nottingham to study Zoology at Nottingham University. After finishing her degree in 1998 and because a friend said she’d never get in, Hannah moved on to qualify as a Chartered Accountant
After the birth of her son Thomas in 2005 and her daughter Gemma in 2007, Hannah took a career break from Finance and started doing animal portrait commissions. She joined the Nottingham Society of Artists in 2009 and also became a Friend of the Society of Equestrian Artists. Hannah has since become the Membership secretary for the SEA which keeps her busy in any spare time.
In 2011 Hannah was selected to take part in a yearlong mentorship program with Kevin Macpherson (one of America’s leading plein air painters).
Artists who inspire Hannah include: Malcolm Coward, Ken Howard, David Curtis, Trevor Chamberlain, Edward Seago and Kevin Macpherson.
