Recently selected as one of the final 20 artists of the Offenhaus Live international online art competition and featuring in British Vogue magazine, Hannah Shergold is rapidly building a following as a gifted sculptor and painter. She graduated from Cambridge University in 2006 having studied pre-clinical Veterinary Medicine and quickly established herself as a highly respected animal sculptor, focusing on commission work for private clients.
In 2009, still eager for adventure and personal challenge, Hannah joined the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and commissioned into the Army Air Corps. She is now a fully qualfied Lynx helicopter commander and has served all over the world including Canada, Kenya, Germany and Afghanistan.
Hannah was awarded several prestigious commissions during her time in the Army and completed substantial works including the leaping Lynx for the Army Air Corps and the Charging Black Rhino for the 1st (UK) Armoured Division in Germany. More recently, and whilst deployed with the British Army in Kenya conducting Medical Evacuation tasks, Hannah passed the time on standby duty by painting the wildlife that she was camped next to.
Since returning to the UK in 2016 Hannah has continued to explore her fascination with Africa whilst broadening her range to include a game shooting theme. Her collectors certainly recognise the rarity of an artist that can combine colour and texture with an anatomical accuracy essential to capture the essence of her subject matter.
