Hannah Dosanjh

Swindon based Artist and Historian

Hannah Dosanjh is a skilled illustrator and artist, also known for her unique collages and naive style art. Hannah has developed a distinctive style that draws inspiration from local history, creating detailed compositions and “time capsules” that transport viewers to a different era.

Her collages often incorporate  old photos, and other found objects, giving her art a sense of depth and texture. Her use of bold colors and whimsical figures adds to the playful and nostalgic feel of her work.

Hannah is passionate about using art, humour and story to bring local history to life for children. Her unique approach to learning through art has been welcomed by teachers and she has helped many students create their own unique works of art while learning about the past.

Our year 5 children had the best time! All in all we really had the most amazing afternoon with Hannah, she was so engaging and the children loved meeting a real life author. The cherry on the cake was the children could purchase a book if the wished to and had their books signed. We will 100% be inviting Hannah again because she was really inspirational to the children.

her educational background engages students through a context-driven explanation and a comedic, quick-witted delivery. Our students really enjoyed her anecdotal style too - being a history and architecture nerd, her love of art, the importance of ‘telling an audience a story’ to engage and excite others. We look forward to working with Hannah again.
