Sarah Hanson is a British artist producing collage illustrations for both private and commercial commissions.
She graduated with a First Class BA (Hons) in Graphic design and Illustration from the University of Hertfordshire in 2006.
Since then, Sarah has worked for a wide range of clients within the Advertising, Editorial, Publishing, and design sectors and occasionally guest lectures on the Illustration BA at the University of Hertfordshire.
She has also seen her illustrations animated for interactive use and online videos for high profile clients such as Nike and BBC Worldwide.
Sarah spent the early years of her childhood living in Abu Dhabi, UAE sparking a life long admiration for travel and culture.
Her work is a reflection of her experience and is often imbued with a strong sense of place or journey.
Sarah creates original artwork using both traditional handmade and digital techniques, combining textural elements with photography, painting and
printmaking. She collects random ephemera, old paper, and discarded objects, which filter into her images creating subtle texture and interest.
