Hannah Davies - International decorative illustrator. UK

Rich in detail and pattern, full of nature’s beauty and using atmospheric color palettes, the decorative artwork created by Swansea illustrator Hannah Davies is ideal for products, packaging, interiors, fashion, editorial and more. The authentic, handcrafted feel Hannah brings to the projects she works on makes her the perfect illustrator wherever a unique vibe is required.
A fast-working, friendly and enthusiastic artist, Hannah Davies lives and works by the seaside in South Wales, taking inspiration from the textures and patterns of the natural world. She captures that detail and turns it into beautiful, hand-drawn watercolors for her clients. Hannah has a degree in Surface Pattern Design from Swansea Metropolitan University. In addition to illustration work, she has her own line of ceramics, prints and stationery products decorated with her imagery.

Approach

Hannah works by layering together her own textile patterns, colored papers, watercolors and ink drawings. She is fascinated by microscopic patterns and the extraordinary level of detail that it’s possible to display.

Style

Her style is fine, decorative, dreamy and full of whimsical detail. Eastern influences, nature and complex hand-drawn line work are all characteristics of her illustrations. She’s happy working at almost any scale and loves seeing her imagery applied in different ways, from posters to garments to billboards.

It was a joy to work with Hannah on the cover illustration of the latest issue of our journal. She interpreted the brief beautifully, and the cover has been so popular we’ve had people asking where they can buy prints!

We are so happy with Hannah's illustrations for Mudras for Modern Life. They are beautifully designed, vibrant and really capture the spirit of the mudras – just stunning! Hannah was a joy to work with on what was a challenging project, with lots of symbolism to include in every artwork. We would love the opportunity to work with her again.

Hannah has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Her intricate and beautiful drawings always provide an exciting email to open, they are original and imaginative, yet to-brief. We have enjoyed her creative aptitude for bringing our vision to life and the process of creative collaboration.

Hannah had previously artworked one of our book covers: ‘Gaby’s Angel’ which we absolutely loved, I instantly knew that her unique, decorative style would be perfect for our cover of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Working with Hannah was a dream, she was very professional and extremely efficient taking on my initial sketch concepts to create a most beautiful, pretty and delicate cover that really gives this popular classic a fresh and contemporary feel. We are getting enormously positive feedback from the book trade on the new launch of our Children’s Classics series.
