About the artist
Hi I'm Hannah. I am the Perth resin and mixed media artist behind Art by Hannah.
I started my creative journey 2 years ago after seeing resin art on Instagram. I just had to try it for myself! From there it became a creative outlet for me and I grew it into a little business to support myself while I was studying at uni. Any chance I get you'll find me in my studio listening to loud music and pouring resin.
I am inspired by WA's beautiful coastline and the beautiful sights I have seen around the globe.
What is resin art?
Resin is a relatively modern art medium which gained popularity in the 1960s. Originally used as structural or engineering adhesives and protective coatings in the construction of aircrafts and other vehicles; epoxy resin is now widely used by artists by mixing it with various pigments and additives.
Resin is initially clear but will take on whatever pigment or colour you add to it. It is poured as a liquid and sets hard like plastic.
The finish of resin is beautifully flawless. It is reflective like glass with high gloss. When iridescent pigments are added to the resin, the art will shimmer in the light.
