The Creative Life / Y Bywyd Creadigol     

Artist Hannah Firmin has created a limited edition linocut print especially for Peak’s 30th anniversary. The Creative Life / Y Bywyd Creadigol features a view of The Old School over Crickhowell Bridge and celebrates the vibrant creative community of the town. All proceeds from print sales will support our Children & Young People programme.

Hannah is a graduate of the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art.  She has worked as a freelance illustrator and printmaker, working for a wide range of clients including many magazines, newspapers and publishers.  Hannah designed the covers of The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. She always uses the relief print as her method of working, using either lino, vinyl or wood as the engraving/cutting material but combining the print with paint and collage.



Hannah provides inspiring workshops and masterclasses in Peak’s programme for adult learners and young people. Peak commissioned this new limited edition linocut print from Hannah in 2017 to celebrate our 30th anniversary, which you can buy online.
