Hannah Lewis is a Balnarring-based printmaker inspired by her passion for Australian native plants and a love of the bush and its complex ecologies.
From 2004 - 2019 Lewis invested her creativity into secondary school education, developing passion-based learning to ‘change the landscape and mindset’ of the educational setting through horticultural, art and design-based projects. Lewis is motivated by a fundamental belief in the power of art and nature to inspire, motivate, restore, and heal.
Lewis transitioned away from education in 2019 to focus on her art practice and develop her garden Hannah’s Paddock, as a showcase for edible native and indigenous plants.
Increasingly Lewis is driven by a sense of urgency in her art making to highlight the desecration of the natural world by recording the beauty and fragility within the landscape.
Lewis will complete an Artist Residency at Police Point later this year.
