Meet the Artist

My name is Hannah Staley, and I’m an illustrator.

I moved around a few times as a kid, but ultimately I hail from Florida, USA. I have a Mom and Dad and three sisters. (And now, I have some awesome in-laws that include another Mom and Dad, two more sisters, and a brother.)

I loved animals growing up, and at one time even thought that I would study birds for a living. As a kid, we had a couple dogs and a couple birds and some fish, which all probably explains my love of making animal art now.

I graduated high school at 17 and left for Brigham Young University, where I planned to study acting. I was even accepted into BYU’s acting program, but I could feel in my heart that I needed to pursue my first creative love, visual art. Eventually, I actually dropped out of school, but not before falling in love and marrying my now husband, who is also an actor.

I have been making art since I was very little, but only recently have I decided to go after it as a career. The road will be long and hard, but I know it will be worthwhile.

I am currently living and working in Utah with my husband, Tristan, and my rabbit, Luna. Life is good and simple and sweet.
