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 exhibits regularly at Day Gallery, Blackheath
