Hannah Carrick is a visual artist who works across various mediums including acrylic and oil paintings on canvas and graphic design.
Born in Manly on Sydney's Northern Beaches, Carrick's family relocated to northern New South Wales and settled in the coastal village of Lennox Head. Growing up by the sea and surrounded by the Byron Hinterland, Carrick spent most of her time at the beach, exploring rainforests and discovering waterfalls. These early experiences of nature and vivid memories of her childhood are referenced in Carrick's work.
Carrick gained her independence early in life, having left home at the age of 16. This challenging path into womanhood has been reflected in her past works, from simple, fluid lines on canvas representing the female form, to bold, powerful women embracing their sexuality, beauty and confidence.
A trained graphic designer, Carrick graduated from CATC Design School in Brisbane before working on freelance projects amid travel throughout Australia, Europe, North and South America and Indonesia. This global and cultural exploration is where Carrick has drawn a lot of inspiration from.
In 2016 Carrick returned to Sydney to pursue a career in the arts. Carrick now works full time from her studio in Sydney’s inner west, creating commissions, collections and graphic design projects.
