HANNAH MOSHTAEL             @hannahmoshtael


I grew up in the rainy and creative city of Glasgow, with my family roots in the sunny Isle of Wight where tomatoes grow.

Before coming to Cambridge School of Art, I studied English and French at the University of St Andrews, and Social Justice and Community Action at the University of Edinburgh.  There I learned about speaking with words.  The MA in Children’s Book Illustration set me on a journey towards speaking with pictures.

The way I make pictures is like growing a wild colourful garden of different textures and shapes.  I draw what I see and remember, from everyday life, memories and dreams.  Then I use printmaking and collage to make the drawings come alive.

I think that pictures and words have a powerful friendship.  Together they can speak about light, darkness and all the colours of life, to children and grown-ups.
