Nova Scotian Artist And Inclusion Advocate Wins Prestigious Award

Founded by Hannah and her mom, Jill, in Bedford, Nova Scotia, Hannah Hick’s Art features works inspired by nature, animals and Hannah’s surroundings. With her art available in stores in nine provinces, many people would say Hannah is already accomplished, but the 24-year-old Nova Scotian is on her way to achieving so much more.

Hicks just received the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal in recognition for her significant contribution to the Province in the field of Arts. Her art was featured at the Toronto Gift + Home Market and her work will be on display at the upcoming Craft East Buyer’s Expo.

Hannah lives with Down Syndrome and is a Special Olympic gold medalist who spreads the message of inclusion and how we can celebrate our differences. Her disability has only strengthened her drive to achieve her goals as she motivates others to do the same.

Currently on a break from Special Olympics, Hicks is concentrating on building an art career. She hopes her art and story motivates others to achieve their goals and help create a more inclusive future for people of all abilities.
