Who, What, Where and Why

 

Hiya, I find writing about myself very tricky so in an attempt to give this a little structure I am going to answer the following and perhaps you'll get to know a little about me in the process....

WHO AM I?

My name is Hanna Benihoud and at the time of writing this I am 30 years old. I am a born and bred North Londoner and wherever I am in the world London flows in my blood.

WHAT DO I DO?

I qualified as an architect in September 2014 after a gruelling 9 years of studying! I have been working in practice for 5 years in East London.

I am also an artist. I started an art project called 'A Labour of Love' in 2014. I work in mixed media creating one off pieces and large scale installations. The trickier the project the better! My work is represented by Curious Duke Gallery in London

WHERE AM I?

It's time to mix things up a little so I am leaving my beloved London for a new adventure, traveling across the world to live in Vancouver with my new husband.

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

I am addicted to challenging myself which dictates my decision making the majority of the time. Whether it be working with contractors on site or having my first boxing fight I am committed to working as hard as I can, which can be summarised in a greys anatomy quote:

What’s that saying... Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.
— Meredith Grey - Greys Anatomy

That's me in a nutshell!
