Laura Hamilton
Laura Hamilton is a gifted textile artist who has exhibited widely in the Caribbean, as well as in the USA, the UK and Mozambique. Hamilton was born and grew up in Jamaica where her father and brother still live. After completing her studies at Kingston Polytechnic, the Byam Shaw Art School and the Central School of Art and Design in the UK, she remained in London and started her own family in 2000. She launched her textile company shortly after the youngest of her three children began school. Laura’s main goal has been to reintroduce the art of hand-made textile design to the wider public and create sustainable industries in her original and adoptive countries. Her work can be found in corporate and private collections internationally.
