Hi! I'm Hannah.

I'm a full-time illustrator, muralist, and designer, specializing in hand lettering and authentic messages. I live in Providence, Rhode Island, in a house with an orange door.My goal is to create artwork and products that help people to bring more beauty and joy into their lives through their authentic selves.

Right to My Heart

When I was a kid, my Mema (my mom's mom) had a very special way of saying goodbye. She'd always ask us to blow her a kiss. Then she would pretend to catch the kiss, and bring her hand over her heart. "Right to my heart," she'd always say.

Straight From the Heart

I'm so inspired by my Mema's penchant for living authentically. She meant what she said and she said what she meant. And that's how I try to live, and the art I try to make. No forced positivity. Just honest, authentic work.

My Story

Age 8

When I was a kid, I knew I wanted to be an artist. But my mom told me that you can't make money as an artist unless you work as an architect. I took a kid's architecture class at RISD and it turns out I hate math! So I gave up on my dream of becoming a professional artist. Until...

Age 39

I spent over 10 years working for non-profits. Eventually, one of my hobbies (calligraphy) turned into a bit of a side hustle. But people started asking me to do things I didn't know how to do, like make logos! I went back to school for graphic design, and then realized that what I really wanted to do was illustration. Since then, I've been so lucky to make this a full-time job!

Inspiration

As an avid gardener, I'm so inspired by the way living things grow. Seemingly symmetrical, botanics are anything but, full of uneven edges and surprising shapes. Somehow nature has fractals and symmetry, but also wonky shapes. I'm so inspired by the way nature can be lovely and imperfect, all at once.
