Hannah studied Zoology and Philosophy at Bristol University before fulfilling a childhood ambition to train as a Vet. She has worked in Veterinary practice for almost twenty years, with spells in specialist equine and small animal practice.
In recent times farm animals have become a passion and she is currently working in a specialist farm practice with a particular interest in cattle. Years of study of anatomy and physiology have resulted in a view of the living animal as a functional and structure based being - and this, superimposed upon the real essence of the beast, lends a quality of true character and deep understanding to her work. Beautiful music, bovine medicine, the biggest dog you have ever seen, and more than your average number of children feature among the daily household activities. Time occasionally generously offers itself for sculpting. In a recycled sauna/studio, intricate diagrams from worn anatomy manuals are transferred from page to hand and from hand to wax. Hannah works in partnership with a local artist and casting expert Crispin Foy to ensure that each finished piece is a unique and deeply personal creation.
