Hannah Sommerville

Hannah Sommerville comes from the scenic South Coast of New South Wales. She earned a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts and Graphic Design) from Wollongong University in 2005 and practiced as a commercial designer before becoming a mother of two. Reading with her young children rekindled Hannah's adoration of children's picture books and she began to turn her attention to illustration.

Being a mother has inspired Hannah's work and provided a meaningful relationship between her life and art. Hannah enjoys capturing familiar instances in the life of children and focuses on crafting moments to which her readers can connect.

2016 sees the publication of two picture books illustrated by Hannah. Emma Allen's My Friend Ernest published in January and I Just Couldn't Wait to Meet You scheduled for publication in April.

Hannah's illustrations can be viewed at
