Announcement    My name is Claudia Hahn, I'm an award winning illustrator & wildlife artist based in the United Kingdom.
- I care much for our environment and try to wrap my orders as eco friendly as I possibly can. Most of my wrapping is either recyclable, made from recycled materials, or had been previously used and is repurposed. It might not look posh, but it will help reducing landfill and this is what deeply matters to me - like all animal and nature lovers, I'm sure we share the same values!
- If you wish to purchase any of of the shown prints in a different size than offered, please feel free to contact me and I see what I can do.
- All the works shown here are my own designs, please do respect my copyright. I will defend those fiercely.
- Requests from publishers as well as private commissions are warmly welcome.

Thank you for visiting my shop!

Natural history and scientific illustrations

Though I always wanted to be an artist - and art has been part of my life as long as I remember - I first had to choose a different path. I have very strict parents with pretty old-fashioned views who (still to this day) don't consider art as a "proper" profession, so I was not allowed to study art after I left school. I trained as a carpenter and worked in this profession for years instead. It is rather sad how much ones family opinion can affect ones ambition, and so I'd never really contemplated turning to art as a full time career until years later.

I never stopped drawing though, and after a sad stroke of fate hit me in 1997, when I lost the person closest to me, I decided that it was time to re-evaluate my life's direction. I couldn't just go one with my life as it was, I had to start afresh and it occurred to me that I lost all those dreams and ambitions I had when I was growing up. I went back to school and studied graphic design and book illustration in Germany. Not only did it truly open my eyes and showed me that I have indeed found what I wanted to do for a living, it gave me a good artistic foundation in many different techniques, composition and even marketing. I learnt not to fear any medium which I have not used before, and I still like experimenting with different techniques and styles to this day.

A few years ago I met the love of my life and followed him back to England. I still can’t tell the difference between Earl Grey and English Breakfast tea, but I am working on it!

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

If you mark your order as 'gift', I will carefully gift wrap it for you, if you wish so. I don't charge extra for this service.

Wholesale availability

I'm open to galleries and gift shops stocking my items. Please enquire about wholesale.

Domestic shipping

For UK customers only, I offer 'standard' and 'tracked & signed' shipping. Although I ALWAYS get a 'proof of posting' from the post office, the 'standard' shipping will not be trackable, nor is it insured. I do NOT take responsibility for lost/stolen/damaged-in-transit orders, if your order was sent 'standard'. So far, nothing has gone missing or damaged in transit - Royal Mail seems quite reliable - but the risk is yours if you don't like to pay the extra.

Will my international order be trackable?

Orders coming from outside the United Kingdom will always be shipped 'tracked & singed international'.

Etsy normally includes the tracking number in the automated email. If you can't find it, please let me know and I will message it to you.

My order hasn't arrived, what do I do?

Please contact me as soon as possible!!! I will be able claim compensation for lost orders via our postal service, for up to 60 days after I have posted them.
After that time period, I'm afraid I can't do anything any more. I do not refund for parcels which got lost in the postal service past 2 month deadline, and not at all if you have not selected the 'tracked' or 'signed' postage option.

Custom and personalised orders

Please be aware that I ship from the United Kingdom. If you are in Europe, I will have to fill out a customs declaration. Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. It is illegal to lie on the customs forms, please don't ask me to fill it in wrongly, as this will reflect back to me if I get caught.

Please be aware that there are currently delays at the border. I'm not responsible for any delays at border control due to the new customs rules, this is out of my hands.

I will always send orders outside the UK tracked. Should your parcel be delayed in customs, you will be able to see and follow its progress.
