Hannah Frank was born in 1908 in the Gorbals area of Glasgow, Scotland. She attended Strathbungo School and Albert Road Academy in the south side of Glasgow and went on to study at Glasgow University, graduating in 1930. During her time at Glasgow University she provided poems and drawings for the Glasgow University magazine under the pseudonym 'Al Aaraaf'. She then went on to train to be a teacher at Jordanhill College of Education. Whilst a student at Jordanhill she contributed drawings to the student publication, the New Dominie.

Frank taught for many years, principally at Campbellfield School in Glasgow. In 1939, she married Lionel Levy, a science and mathematics teacher. She studied sculpture at Glasgow School of Art and was active within the Jewish Community, providing drawings for various organisations from the 1940s onwards, and contributing her work to fundraising campaigns. From the 1950s onwards she worked exclusively in creating sculptures and continued to do so until her early nineties. She died in 2008.
