Helloooo. I’m Hannah, a Colombian-Pakistani illustrator, designer, and writer born and raised in the United Arab Emirates. I graduated from The New School in New York City with a BFA in Illustration (Parsons) and a BA in Culture & Media Studies (Eugene Lang) in 2020. The following year, in July of 2021, I completed a Master’s in Editorial Design at Elisava in Barcelona, where I am currently based.

Combining my theoretical interests with my art/design practice, the majority of my personal visual and written work touches on sociopolitical themes, specifically chronic illness and disability, identity, and the bodymind. 

Message me for commissions and collabs. CV and Portfolio available upon request.
