ARTIST INFO
Jo Hamilton’s crocheted art is a fascinating combination of traditional technique with contemporary subject matter. A native of Scotland, Hamilton earned a degree in painting and drawing from the Glasgow School of Art, but after moving to Portland, Oregon she translated her artistic vision into the medium of crochet, which she learned as a child from her grandmother. She has made large-scale cityscapes as well as larger than life portraits, ranging from male nudes, to commission subjects, masked women and matriarchs.
