Claudia Hahn
Artist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
I studied graphic design and Illustration in Freiburg/Germany, now I'm based in the United Kingdom where I work as a freelance graphic designer/illustrator and photographer. I have always been inspired by nature itself, as well as fantasy and fiction literature, movies and comics. I illustrate and paint mostly in traditional media; mainly acrylic and pencil, sometimes oil, as well as digital in Photoshop or Illustrator.

I hope you like my artwork, any comments are warmly welcome, please don't be offended if I can't always find the time to answer.

My ETSY store:


A puppy for Christmas - final artwork by Heliocyan
A puppy for Christmas - final artwork
I finally managed to scan this one which was a Christmas commission. I have cropped it slightly, it had a white border which I found distracting while looking at it on a monitor.
The dog in the painting is about twice the size she really is, she is tiny and super sweet! :) 

Acrylic and oil, gold leaf and cracklé medium on hot press water colour paper.

Chihuahua for Christmas by Heliocyan
Chihuahua for Christmas
On my easel the last commission for this year, a Chihuahua. I usually don't do pet portraits, as I think there are other artists who do that much better than I do, but I know the dog and it's owner well so I thought I may make an exception... It will be a Christmas present for his girlfriend.

I only just finished it, the paint is still wet. I will upload a scan as soon as it is dry enough for removing off the stretching board and scanning.

Thank you all so much for your lovely Birthday wishes, you are all too kind, my gentle folks! It truly means a lot to me to know you are thinking of me. :heart: :hug:
I am so sorry for my late reply, I'm terribly busy at the moment doing all those Christmas markets. I only came home yesterday, but I'm already preparing and packing to set up on the next event... It's this time of the year again, exciting times, but a lot of work. :heart:

New water colours! by Heliocyan
New water colours!
As people are always interested about paints & materials used, I must share my thoughts on these ones with you: If you love water colours and you don't know these ones yet, here an idea to write down to your 'wish list' for Santa: Japanese Gansai Tambi water colours by Kuretake!! 

This is the 36 colours set. I absolutely LOVE them. I had this set for a while now but couldn't find the time to try them properly before now. The colours are amazingly vibrant and intense. They are so highly pigmented and respond very easily to water that you don't need to use a lot, and if you mix the paint thick, it will have the same effect than gouache has. 

Fabulous paints, a must have. :heart:
I will have a table at the Guildford Gift Show on the 22nd of November. If you are in the area, stop by and say hello! :heart:  

There will be the opportunity to ice skate as well, I haven't done this for years!!!

I hope you don't mind, but there was a thread in the Thumbshare Forum for tiger pictures and I immediately thought of your paintings :) I've shared three of them in the thread :)…

Heute kamen endlich die Grußkarten aus deinem Society6 shop an! :la:
Sie sind leider einen ticken grünstichig und das Hintergrundmuster (Motiv "Halloween" übrigens) kommt nicht so schön raus wie auf dem Bildschirm.
Aber sie sind trotzdem wunderschön, sind groß und stabil. Und das Motiv, aaah :heart:
Zwei verschick ich zu Weihnachten an besondere Menschen und eine behalte ich selbst :)

Oh, das tut mir sehr Leid, dass sie nicht so schön rauskommen wie auf dem Bildschirm. :( Das ist einer der Gründe warum ich lieber meine eigenen Drucke auf ETSY verkaufe, so kann ich sicherstellen, dass der Druck auch so aussieht, wie das Original. Die guten Leute auf Society6 haben das Original ja nie gesehen, das muss sehr schwer sein, das dann so hinzukriegen. Allerdings ist mein Papier bestimmt nicht so schön und stabil wie das von Society6. Freut mich aber, dass sie Dir trotzdem gefallen! :hug: :heart:

Ja, das stimmt...ich weiß auch, wie schwer das sein muss, die Farben exakt hinzubekommen.

Sie sind wirklich ein echter Hingucker :)
