Hannah Shand loves New Zealand’s native birds, and has a fascination with our beautiful and unique flora and fauna. Her other passion is drawing, and she creates realistic and timeless artworks using black fine-tip pens. Combining her passions with her love for the outdoors and photography, Hannah explores remote predator-free islands and bird sanctuaries, and draws inspiration from her wildlife encounters. It’s these precious moments that she portrays in her artwork, capturing each bird’s individual character. She also shares her adventures, art journey, and bird photography through her social media channels, and enjoys connecting with other people who are passionate about birds and conservation.
