Hannah Davies - Swansea,  South Wales based illustrator

Growing up in South Wales, Hannah Davies is happiest near the sea and still lives in the region. During a textiles course in Swansea, she discovered illustration and it has become her passion. As well as being a fantastic decorative illustrator working in advertising, fashion and editorial, she also makes a range of items using her textiles skills. She loves warm weather, walking her dog on the beach, and playing boules.

Training

Hannah has a degree in Surface Pattern Design from Swansea Metropolitan University.

Approach

Pattern designs and hand drawn elements are combined in Hannah’s work to create something new and unique. She works by layering together her own textile patterns, coloured papers, watercolors and ink drawings. She’s also fascinated by microscopic patterns and the extraordinary level of detail that its 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.

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. The amount of thought and detail that goes into Hannah’s illustrations is evident, for these reasons we have not hesitated to ask her to work with us again.

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.

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.
