As an author and illustrator, Hannah’s paper cuttings, sketches, and screen-print work draw inspiration from intricate plant life, native animals, and serene or mighty landscapes. Her memories of moments sailing, dancing, wandering, and wondering inspire her to share with others; to look carefully and then even more closely at the treasures she finds day to day. This knack for paying attention, as well as adventures with her young son, have been the impetus for S is for Salmon: A Pacific Northwest Alphabet, and Arrow to Alaska: A Pacific Northwest Adventure, released April 2015.
