Robert Hamilton-Pennell grew up in Oregon and studied art, architecture and education at Washington State University and the University of Oregon.

He has spent more than forty years as a teacher and artist. Bob’s goal has always been to create work that strikes a balance between organic and geometric shapes and between the abstract and the realistic.

“Ever since my childhood on trails in the Cascades or in the sagebrush high desert of central Oregon, I have been drawn to the patterns I see in the rocks, or in a dark cathedral of firs, or in the desert vastness that vanishes into a dusty evening horizon. Capturing my love of the land, channeling all that wonder onto paper or canvas has been the quest of a lifetime…”
