Ian Hamlin, Artist

Drawing inspiration from the great painters of light I'm trying in my paintings to achieve a sense of 'being there' and through that the contemplation of something more - beyond the subject itself, no boundaries...the search for who I am and my connection with that landscape or environment is what drives me to paint, a kind of distillation of concept, emotion and the play of light.
A sense of wonder at the beauty of our planet informs my inspiration and through that the desire to treasure and protect our delicate environment.
