Hannah said: “It’s great to be home. I really missed Lincoln. It was a big decision to leave London, but the pull of home proved too strong.

“I trained at University of the Arts London – my course tutors were all successful art directors in the film industry and I was lucky enough to be able to do a number of placements and jobs during my studies, which enabled me to learn skills such as 3D graphics and the practicalities of set building and design.

“The highlight for me so far has been working as a Production Designer on a film which won Best International Film at the Fresh Media festival of Wales.

“I was responsible for designing the film as well as running the art department, sourcing props, designing and making the sets and managing the art direction.

“I am keen to encourage the collaborative creative scene in Lincoln, from film-making to fine art

“I have a Facebook page which I regularly update with my film and fine art.”
