Cloud Hamilton is a figurative painter who works in a variety of mediums such as oil paint, acrylic and watercolor. Inspired by both classical and contemporary artists, such as Caravaggio and Shanna Van Maurik. Her work has been featured in multiple shows throughout Ventura county.

Her painting techniques vary, using a combination of smooth blending as well as textured strokes to emphasize shape or value. She uses both bright, vibrant color and contrasting darks and shadows in her work. She often paints individuals with whom she shares a strong emotional connection. The presentation of the figure varies to convey the internal aspects of being human.

You can see Cloud’s work every first Friday of the month at our clubhouse at Bell Arts Factory, in Studio 84.
