Artist Marie Claire Hamon Painting by Marie Claire Hamon

Artist Marie Claire Hamon teaches our two day Painting for Beginners Course, is one of the teachers who provide our Life Drawing Evenings on Wednesdays and is a Tutor on our One Year Figure 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.
