Born in South Africa and now based in the United Kingdom, Hamish has been passionate about art since his earliest memories and have always been actively involved in the creative process. After studying a Bachelor of Arts degree with Art History as his major Hamish started his career teaching Art at Secondary school level. It wasn't long before he became a full time professional and 25 years late is still passionate about producing excellence in every work.
Hamish favours the sculpture and painting disciplines and draws on his faith for inspiration in every piece of art. Predominantly working with an oil paint medium Hamish creates the most sublime original abstract paintings which embody a sense of movement and force with each brush stroke. He draws attention to the idea of beauty in the natural world so tends to focus on extraordinary landscapes or seascapes. The paint is layered in a gestural and spontaneous manner. His process is to work in harmony with the medium, materials and surface allowing the paintings themselves to guide his hand and reach an authentic outcome in unity. Every painting get a gloss resin finish for that perfect final touch. Each painting is one of a kind and completely unique in presentation, composition and depth. We have both a selection of Hamish's painting's in the gallery to view or bespoke commissions available if preferred, please contact is directly if interested.
