As my painting evolves towards abstraction, my focus remains on the ever-inspiring landscapes and seascapes that surround me. Relocating from the UK to the stunning shores of Tasmania has ignited a profound appreciation for the interplay of colour and light, which serves as the bedrock of my creative process.
My mission is to create relaxing artwork that finds its place in beautiful homes, a sanctuary I deeply cherish and hold close to my heart. I've discovered immense joy in being at home, and it fuels my vision of sharing my art with homes across Australia and beyond. Additionally, I am committed to giving back to the community by contributing to Australian homeless charities each year.
While my paintings may not be tied to specific geographical locations, they draw inspiration from the rugged Tasmanian coastline and the memories of my seaside upbringing. My passion for interior design and an evergreen connection to nature guide me as I play with diverse colour palettes. The horizon, where the earth meets the sky, serves as my perennial starting point, from which I capture the ethereal beauty of clouds, the tranquillity of beaches, and the boundless expanse of the ocean or land. Exploring the rich and vibrant colours of the Australian landscape is a constant delight for me.

MY ONLINE SHOP WILL REOPEN AGAIN IN JANUARY 2024. I AM CURRENTLY OVERSEAS TAKING A BREAK WITH MY FAMILY.
Hannah Blackmore is a Hobart-based painter who creates abstract landscape paintings in acrylics. Her work primarily explores the beauty of light, colour, and atmosphere in the landscape.
Hannah was brought up in a creative family in Jersey, Channel Islands. She was exposed to art from a young age and discovered the work of French impressionists like Degas, Renoir and Monet, which first sparked her interest in painting.
Immigrating to Tasmania in 2012, she rediscovered her passion for painting. She applied for a studio space at Salamanca Arts Centre and has been painting full-time since 2015.
Hannah has travelled extensively throughout Australia and now resides in Hobart, which she is happy to call home. Her love for nature and travel prompted her to focus on the landscape genre of painting. Never too far from the ocean and beaches, she enjoys exploring and painting Tasmania's picturesque and often wild coastal scenery.
Her art now lives in countries all over the world and she enjoys working as an independent artist. She has also authored a business book for artists called ‘This Business of Art: How To Become A Professional Artist.’
When not in her studio painting, she loves having coffee with her husband Steve and spending time with her giant Leonberger dog, Oscar.
