Police Point Virtual Residency – Catherine Hamilton
Catherine Hamilton is a visual artist living and working on the Mornington Peninsula. Catherine’s work is distinctive, bold, vibrant and full of energy. She works in various media but pushes the boundaries in diverse exploratory and original techniques.
For her virtual residency, Catherine has put together An Artist’s Journey, an incredibly insightful four-part video series that takes us through the process of creating art works, from inspiration, to sketching, watercolour, ink work, and colour studies, as well as materials and techniques.
Catherine is also a respected and sought-after tutor, and these videos are designed to educate and allow the viewer to play, experiment and enjoy exploring the creation of their own works.
About the Virtual Residency program
Mornington Peninsula Shire’s internationally significant Police Point Artist in Residence program supports between 25 – 30 local, national and international artists each year. The program supports a wide range of emerging, mid-career and established artists, with more than half of the annual allocation of residencies granted to Peninsula-based artists to develop and foster their artistic practice.
In response to COVID-19 and in the corresponding interests of public safety, the Police Point Artist in Residence program was temporarily suspended in 2020. Mornington Peninsula Shire developed a virtual residency program to support the Peninsula-based artists who had previously successfully applied to continue to develop and deliver creative works.
