Dion Hamill is a commercial illustrator who has worked in advertising and marketing for the past 20 years. He is the author and illustrator of three children’s books and has illustrated picture books and book covers for various authors. Influenced by natural surroundings and science fiction themes, Dion’s works emphasize emotion over photo-realism.
Louise Hamill is a contemporary artist working across painting, drawing and sculpture. Inspired by dreams, the supernatural and nature, Louise creates highly detailed nightscapes of imagined and real scenes in nature.
While in residence, the artists will explore ideas of discovery and belonging through crystal formations and familiar landscapes. Together Dion and Louise will combine 2D and 3D art; Louise will make small mixed media sculptures of minerals as an accompaniment to Dion's landscape paintings.
