Copyright Ed Hamilton

Ed was born in England and grew up in The Isles Of Scilly, Cornwall. He took art classes at college, while studying for his electronics degree, but it was a life class 30 years later at The Round Top Center for the Arts that rekindled a serious interest in drawing and sculpture.


About Ed HamiltonTwo years later, inspired by a book by Dick Onians, he started carving the figure in wood. The evening classes at Round Top and The River Arts Centre, in Damariscotta, Maine, provided a welcome change from his busy yacht charter business.


He soon graduated to stone and clay. Several of his sculptures have been cast in bronze, either as limited editions or one-off commissions. He is primarily interested in sculpting the figure and currrently works with a group of like minded sculptors under The River Arts program.


Ed is John Hamilton's son and Jane's brother. He lives in Maine, with his wife, Barbara.
