Hannah Giffard Artist
Hannah Giffard is a Norfolk artist who has worked as a professional painter and illustrator for over 20 years and exhibited widely throughout the UK and abroad.
In 2000 Hannah won a BAFTA for her TV animation series: 'Pablo the Little Red Fox,' which she created, as a children's book character and then developed for the TV.
Hannah Giffard has a love of oil painting, and conveys the landscape and seasons of Norfolk and Suffolk. The soft cornfields in summer, hares running, to mythical animals set in the rural settings of the Norfolk and Suffolk coast. Hannah's parents were both Slade trained artists who met at Art School and transmitted their love of art.
After her Little Red Fox success, Hannha continues to create art which is quite magical, full of movement and unique, captivating paintings which transport the viewer to another realm.
Hannah Giffard was also the lead artist for the delivery of artwork on the walls of Children's wards in Norfolk and Norwich Hospital. Many of the art scenes were set in Southwold, Suffolk.
