Katherine Hamilton

The Academy of Florence, The Byam Shaw School of Art and the London School of Contemporary Dance formed the basis of my training. I worked as both dancer and muralist in London, Amsterdam and New York, which led to a commission from the Ministry of Culture in Ethiopia to choreograph and form a dance company in Addis Ababa.

From Ethiopia to the present day my work has revolved around both landscape and the study of other cultures. The agricultural communities of Guatemala, the fishing communities of Senegal, life in and around the river Niger, Mali, as well as subjects closer to home such as the Hippodrome Circus, Great Yarmouth, the Salt Marshes of Norfolk and Townscapes of Southwold.

My work is primarily oil on canvas.

Since 1984 I have exhibited in London, East Anglia, America and Gloucestershire. My work is held in both private and public collections.

I have recently made a limited edition of Southwold prints from paintings that I have made over the years that are currently showing at Buckenham Galleries.

I live and work in Suffolk.
