Hannah Shergold on Science, Art, Psychology and Conservation

Scientist, painter and former Army helicopter pilot Hannah Shergold on her “fascinating yet peculiar” journey to becoming an artist.

Hannah is one of the UK’s most successful self-represented artists, best known for her extraordinary wildlife pieces which have raised more than £300,000 for conservation charities like Tusk and the Invictus Games Team UK.

She shares stories from her missions to austere & remote parts of places like Afghanistan and African trouble spots recovering the wounded in the Lynx; reveals her usual methods of creating her work – joking paint thinner is her assistant – and talks about her passion for psychology.
