Rich in detail and pattern, full of nature’s beauty and using atmospheric colour 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 watercolours 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.
Hannah works by layering together her own textile patterns, coloured papers, watercolours and ink drawings. She is fascinated by microscopic patterns and the extraordinary level of detail that it’s possible to display.
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.
