Hannah Bailey
Hannah Bailey studied illustration at Brighton University in the United Kingdom, graduating in 2010. Her illustrations begin with pencil sketches that are traced and each tiny shape or segment hand-cut into a stencil. She then uses vibrant inks to fill the shapes with texture and colour, digitalises the elements and rearranges them into a final composition. Hannah is inspired by the natural world, growing things and history.
