Hannah McDonald is a published author/illustrator currently taking part in a year-long residency programme with us here at The Horsebridge.
Working mostly with ink and watercolour paints to create stories and artwork inspired by nature. Her first book, The Book of Moons and Seasons, came out last year, and consists of a collection of small comics, seasonal folklore and illustrated moments telling the tale of the passing seasons and moon calendar throughout the year.
We have the pleasure of stocking Hannah's prints and cards in our shop and are really excited to support Hannah at the centre with this first Horsebridge residency. As a resident in Amsterdam currently, Hannah is making four trips to Whitstable to capture the seasons, working on the project from Amsterdam in between and culminating in an exhibition at the end of the year. Throughout the residency Hannah will be writing and sharing images of her progress, giving you the opportunity to share and engage in the experience, read along here, follow Hannah on instagram and we'll also keep you posted on our socials too.
