Artist Marie Claire Hamon Painting by Marie Claire Hamon

Artist Marie-Claire Hamon teaches our Painting for Beginners Course and she is one of the tutors on our Life Drawing Evenings on Wednesdays from 7pm-9pm. Marie-Claire also teaches on our Defining Practice course.


Of her own painting she says; 'The process I use creates a catalyst for an imaginative landscape in which I can invent scenic walks and environmental catastrophes.  It becomes a meditation on the begininning and end, on life and death, on love and loss.  It is cataclysmic and alive'.

I spend time in the landscape, walking ancient trails, sometimes pilgrims' routes, it is an attempt at reconnecting with something closer to our original provenance.  My work embraces a sublime and arcane sense of the landscape whilst pointing to the overriding threat of environmental chaos.
