Hannah says… 

Being surrounded by a family of creatives, art and design encompasses all that I do and is a large part of my life. This lead me to studying at the University for the Creative Arts where I gained a BA (Hons) in Fashion Design and industry experience in luxury womenswear fashion and accessories. After graduating I worked as an Art and Textiles tutor for a charitable organisation, a sustainable Fashion label, an Art Gallery and with a Restoration and Conservation company that specified in fine art and antiques.

Being a creative freelancer had proven challenging to keep the work life balance and the uncertainty of work left me wanting something that had more stability and career progression. So I decided to look for new ways to continue to develop my career within Art and Design.

Feeling super humble to be given the opportunity to be a part of  STEP. It has given me the chance to live out the dream to be immersed within two different renowned art and design organisations. Now only a month in and already it has enabled me to create invaluable connections within industry and I have confidence that it will continue to help me progress in my career through refining and learning new skills.
