Hannah Ackroyd is an Further Education Lecturer at Leeds Arts University previously studying a BA in Illustration and Animation at Kingston School of Art (2019), Graphic Communication at Escola Superior de Artes e Design (Porto, PT) and the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Leeds Arts University.
Hannah’s practice-led research explores various approaches to image-making through processes such as bookmaking, photography, collage, printmaking, and writing. Interested in the narrative interplay between the different mediums, Hannah explores the relationship between walking and crafting, exploring imagery and language that becomes symbolic and instructive to the process of making as a mnemonic process; building a visual language that questions the representation and perception of images and places.
Hannah received a scholarship from the photography school IC Visual Lab (Bristol) in 2020 and worked as a residency coordinator, directing the international artist residency De Liceira’s ’18 (Porto, PT) after graduating. Hannah is represented by the art collective Wondering People.
