about

I grew up in East Gippsland, where my love for all things textiles, sewing and crafts started at an early age inspired by my Nana and the outdoors.

After an early career in marketing in Melbourne I followed my dream of studying textile design at RMIT. There, I experimented with different creative projects which led to launching my first design label, Hannmaid.

My handmade products are available at select stockists / the movement of small local businesses who care deeply about what they do and why.

My creations in store are all designed and made on the Mornington Peninsula and are inspired by the Australian outdoors and its ability as an ally to bring a calmness and clarity to the mind.

These include a range of hobbies and sources of pleasure interpreted as motifs machine woven and embedded into circular cufflinks, earrings & pendants in addition to a range of fabric face masks.

I’m passionate about making long lasting things which can be cherished and enjoyed and enable a wearer to subtly showcase what brings them happiness.
