Matthew Hamblen About
I'm a lifelong artist, and a huge fan of just about every style of art (and many of music) that exist.
I've tried my hand at many painting styles and I still enjoy tinkering with different elements every chance I get, while also maintaining a repertoire of pieces I know people enjoy and look for from me.
My father (Robert Hamblen of Vermont) is also a fine artist, as was my Grandmother, and so on. Not only did I grow up traveling to art shows every season with my father's business, but to my knowledge, the artistic lineage in my family goes back at least as far as Sturtevant Hamblin (1817-1884) who founded the Prior-Hamblin school back in the 1830's in Boston. Painting is in my blood, so it's only natural that I carry on with our family tradition.
My overall body of work is a continuous process. It is simply one person's journey that happens to be documented in paintings. Painting is just who I am, and is almost as much a part of me as breathing now.
I enjoy being an "outsider" artist as what I do is purely from love.
I hope you have a great day, and THANK YOU for taking this time to get to know me!
