Business Spotlight – Hannah Art

One of the joys of my weekly constituency visits is getting to meet inspirational people – which is why it is such a delight for me to spotlight ‘Hannah Art’, the wonderful business set up by fourteen year old Hannah Fewell, whom I recently met at Banham Zoo’s brilliant ‘Christmas Enterprise Festival’.

Hannah is an autistic girl with a love for both animals and art – two passions that came together when she participated in Banham Zoo’s ‘Wildlife Warriors’ summer camp in 2022, and which Hannah has found helps regulate her emotions.

Inspired by a talk on vultures given by Andy Hallsworth (the Zoo’s Head of Animal Training and Presentations), Hannah drew one. Impressed by the quality of Hannah’s artwork, Andy invited Hannah to run a stall to help raise funds for vulture conservation on international Vulture Awareness Day – and later, again, for Red Panda Day.

Since then, Hannah’s passion has seen her continue to draw – producing a range of wonderful pieces that she now sells through her website here.

It was a pleasure to meet Hannah and, as you will see from some of the photos below, the quality of her work is outstanding. Bravo Hannah!
