Biography

 

Harriet Hampton.

 

 

 

 Painter / Illustrator.

 

 

 

  I’ve been drawing and painting for 35 years.  My background is in Fine Art/ painting and I’m a published illustrator.

 

 

  My lifelong fascination and consequently strength is drawing, line and structure being at the root of all my work.  No mark is meaningless and my greatest discovery is that, like all else in life, it all joins up, one thing being dependent upon the next.  Making a mark of the right quality should succeed in explaining another.  The challenge is to build / draw a recreation of what one sees that will ‘Stand up’, unsupported.

 

 

  Most of my paintings are the product of a drawing
