More about us
My name is Mari and I am a joint honours student, studying History of Art and Film and Television Studies. In my three years at the University of Glasgow, I have also studied English literature and computer science, with this wide range of interests helping me greatly when it comes to thinking about making art accessible and enjoyable online. It inspires me to see other women doing well in the creative field and to give back something for someone who worked so hard is an honour! Hopefully soon will come the creation of the Hannah Frank online exhibition!

Hi, I'm Belen and I'm a Joint Honours student currently pursuing an MA in History of Art and English Literature. I come from Italy, I have Argentinian origins and I'm really enjoying my studies at the University of Glasgow. I'm really happy to have the opportunity of working on the next online exhibition and exploring the best ways to both showcase Hannah Frank's works and tell her story. I've been learning so much about her and I find her story very empowering. She sets an example for all the women interested in pursuing a career in the arts and I hope others will be as much interested in learning more about her through this exhibition!
Hi! I’m Iona, I’m a History of Art and English Literature student at Glasgow University. I grew up locally and have spent years of my life incredibly passionate about art, both creating my own and studying others. I’ve been closely studying Hannah Frank’s works and have been totally captivated by them, the style and subjects of the works particularly interest me. As I’m sure a lot of us do, I feel an incredibly close personal connection with Frank and her works. I’ve been so lucky to be a part of this project, I hope I can do her work justice and create an exhibition that allows the beauty and power of these works to reach wide audiences.
Hello, I’m Meg! I was born in Oxford but lived in Washington D.C. before moving to Scotland in 2018 to study History of Art at the University of Glasgow. I currently spend a lot of my time studying the diaries Hannah produced almost a century ago. Reading her experience of Glasgow written at the same age I am now is totally captivating. This could be due to the past year’s lack of socialization, but Hannah seems like a close friend of mine! I feel really lucky to be able to engage with her art and I hope you enjoy the work that comes out of this project.
Hiya, I’m Fi! I was born in South Africa and grew up moving around the southern hemisphere and then later within America and then to Northumberland for sixth form, and finally to Glasgow to study History of Art at the university. At the minute, my research regarding Hannah Frank has been based mainly on a deep visual analysis of her pieces – the details are incredible! I have also been working on publishing more posts on social media regarding Frank’s work. Take a look on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hannahfrankart/ ! I also am enjoying researching the works Frank drew that we reproduced in the Glasgow University Magazine, especially as some of my own work has been in the same magazine however many years later. So far, the project has been so rewarding, and I am so lucky to be working with a wonderful group of people, and as Meg said, our friend Hannah.
