Since graduating from my Fine Art Degree in 2008 I have volunteered with the Biennial contemporary arts festival and worked in the Bluecoat Arts Centre.
I have also worked in a number of schools and a Pupil Referral Unit as an Art Facilitator for 14-16 year olds who had been excluded from school.
In 2010 I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in ‘Children and Young People’,
Since September 2010 I have been a freelance community artist working primarily with schools in the northwest of England, but also in nurseries, private companies, NHS trusts and PRUs.
I love to create original artworks and am passionate about inspiring others to user their imaginations and creativity to the full.
I have an up to date DBS check and public liability insurance.
A quote from Headteacher Mrs Hesmondhalgh Peover Superior School:
"We are thrilled with the mosaic Hannah and the children have created. She worked closely with us to capture the children's drawings and create a composite mosaic to commemorate the first world war.
The children loved working with her each week, using a range of different techniques and tools. Hannah was really keen to help us document the children's learning for their Arts Award Discover Award.
I would unreservedly recommend Hannah and look forward to working with her again at Peover Superior. "
A quote from deputy Head teacher Mrs Roberts Our Lady Immaculate Primary School -Everton:
"Working with Hannah has been inspirational for both pupils and staff across the school, she worked closely with the children supporting them in formulating their ideas and designs. Hannah’s enthusiasm and passion for developing young artists was paramount in her professionalism, she demonstrated her ability to work in a busy school with children from Foundation Stage, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Children explored the design process through the medium of mosaic and Hannah was able to creatively include the children’s ideas in a final piece which depicted the school’s catholic ethos. Hannah engaged the
children from beginning to end, she shared her own work as an artist and spent time discussing and explaining her pieces. Age appropriate workshops were delivered to a high standard, supporting the schools implementation of the Art National Curriculum, developing skills and promoting independent and creative thinking."
