Jess Hancock

I am an aspiring visual storyteller who believes passionately in ethical consumption and the therapeutic use of the arts.

As an open-minded and tenacious problem-solver who remains positive under pressure, I am well placed to support the wellbeing of vulnerable and disadvantaged people. Working as a freelance illustrator and art therapist, I aim to both design imaginative and emotionally resonant images and facilitate the therapeutic art-making of others. My ultimate (and more personal) goal is to increase the accessibility, convenience and desirability of a simpler, less wasteful and more conscientious way of life. I hope to contribute to new and more sustainable systems that put people, animals and the planet before profit.
