Hi there, my name is Hana.
I am the founder of Sienna by the Sea Art.
I have always loved being creative and post my art studies I had been largely involved in the creative industry one way or another. I went on a different career direction when I was 28 and entered the Financial Services Industry. It wasn’t until my life took a difficult turn in my mid 30’s that I started creating again to help cope with my situation. Art was my escape and therapy. It helped me be present, was a form of meditation and a way to connect to myself.
Sienna by the Sea Art is named after my daughter who loves to be by the beach and loves being creative.
I wanted to start a business where I can share art with everyone. Art helped me heal and I believe no matter what your perceived skill level is, anyone can benefit from the creative process.
I have a Certificate 4 in Visual Arts and Design, I have studied Patternmaking and Fashion Design and have over 12 years combined experience as an Artist and Fashion Designer.
One of my proudest career achievements were becoming a finalist in the Retailers Association of Queensland Fashion Design Awards for my swimwear label Eve Design.
I hold a current Blue Card no 1983564.
