Rachel Hannan was born in 1971 overlooking Newcastle Beach, NSW.

 

After completing her Fine Arts Degree at Newcastle University in 1992 with a High Distinction in Painting Rachel directed her energies towards the performing arts where she began her successful career as a jazz vocalist and recording artist and has been teaching vocals since 1996.

 

Rachel maintained her art practice through one-off wearable art pieces, sculptural light fittings and handmade painted jewellery. 

In 2008 Rachel returned to the studio and oil painting with a renewed freedom and a relaxed, less analytical approach.

Rachel is represented by Day Gallery, Blackheath
