Kathryn Hamill's canvases depict Florida scenes, still life, and cityscapes. She works from direct observation and expresses a keen awareness of light, color, and atmosphere as her brushstrokes show the clear cobalt blues, the warm peach tones, and the emerald and greens of the world around her. Her recent paintings reflect a growing passion for the vibrant juxtaposition of one color to another so that the viewer's eye is engaged in a dynamic visual experience.

Hamill has had two one-woman shows at the Women's Industrial Union in Boston. She is a graduate of Vassar College and Massachusetts College of Art, where she studied with Marcia Lloyd. She serves on the Foundation Board of the Massachusetts College of Art. In New York City, she worked for Elaine DeKooning, the abstract expressionist painter.
