Hannah Peck is an author and an illustrator based in Brighton, UK. She she originally studied English Literature at university, all the while stocking up on stories, poems and characters that would later inspire her writing and her illustrations. Exposure to this also helped nurture her penchant for the dramatic – especially when it comes to history. From flamboyant Georgian costume and creepy Victorian houses to the woes of Greek mythology, Hannah finds inspiration in museums, tapestries, and artwork from other cultures. Escaping into another time or world with a sketchbook is her absolute favourite thing to do.
Hannah works digitally using Photoshop, employing soft textures, flowing lines, and repeated mark-making to create vibrant, elegant illustrations full of magic and fun. Hannah’s clients include Walker Books, Quarto, Scholastic and Macmillan US.
