Hannah's reflection on pivotal moments in her life show how we are the sum of our parts. Sport, a scholarship, divorcing parents, art, design, turning collecting into curating, finding joy, the inimitable adventures of Roger and Darth are all part of being a successful creative. 

At 12 years old, Hannah Cutts was interviewed on the English National ‘Radio 1 Roadshow’. When this small Cornish girl with blonde hair was asked who she would most like to be, her rapid response was definite...

“I’D LIKE TO BE DALEY THOMPSON.”

Strange as that seems, Hannah has seemingly tried to emulate this decathlete albeit in vastly different fields of play. Here’s the difference...

100 metres - surfer (non-professional but committed ...was 1984-87 English Iron Woman Champion)

Long Jump - photographer (various clients)

Shot put - graphic designer, owner/director

High Jump - lecturer design BA (Think Education)

400 metres - poet

110 metres hurdles - writer (map magazine, industry design publications, desktop magazine...)

Discus throw - artist/instigator LOOK WHAT I FOUND (Edwina Corlette gallery)

Pole vault - blogger (Darthandroger.com, cuttsinmanila.tumblr.com, vimeo.com/hannahcutts)

Javelin throw - speaker (AGDA, BAD, Sydney Design week...)

1500 metres – collector

And just to prove she could go one better – mother!
