JENNIFER HAMILTON

Jennifer Hamilton, born in Goderich, Ontario, lives and works in the Laurentians forest and in Montreal, Quebec. She is deeply interested in spiritual and religious practices and has researched and studied these fields at length. She holds a BFA from Queens University, where she studied painting, printmaking and sculpture, and also attended fashion design school prior to working in the fashion industry while simultaneously pursuing her art practice. She has done many public projects, started WAY magazine, curated gallery shows of numerous artists’ work and has been involved in many cultural projects over time. Although she has had adventures around the world, she is now staying close to home, devoting all her energy and attention to her current major project “The Altars to the Directions”, which is slated to be completed by 2020.
