Hannah Carding always wanted to be a mermaid, but seeing that this would be impossible, has settled for drawing stories and teaching.
Hannah creates her pictures using many different techniques from simple line drawings to etchings, monoprints and paintings, or creating embroideries and storybooks.
She grew up in the heart of Dorset and is very much a lover of rural places – swimming in them, cycling through them or just meandering. In fact, moving through places is often when ideas and imaginings for works of art come to mind.
Hannah’s work often depicts creatures, great or small, or little characters that are part of a narrative that can be a fusion of funny or sad, serious or frivolous. She tries to create worlds that are familiar by the emotions they convey, but with a quiet sense of the unusual about them.
Hannah currently lives and works in London as a freelance illustrator artist and as an educator for various arts organisations. Sharing with others what she knows and does gives her great pleasure.
Exhibition dates: 21st May to 23rd June
