Hannah Battershell

Hannah Battershell is a London based artist whose work is known for its small scale and its ‘playfully dark’ tone. Often reminiscent of old children’s book illustrations in their blend of humour, surreality and melancholy, her pieces range from miniature paintings on buttons to tiny paper collages framed in vintage tins. 

Her work has been displayed in various exhibitions including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2011, 2013 and 2014 and at various solo shows with The Curwen Gallery in Bloomsbury. Her painting ‘Crocodilian’ featured in Images 36 (Association of Illustrators’ Best of New British Illustration). 

Hannah’s work invites the viewer to look a little closer, as if sharing a secret world with the curious. She has a great interest in including a hidden element within each of her pieces.
