Jane Lafarge Hamill

Jane Lafarge Hamill is best known for her abstract oil paintings. After getting her MFA from the New York Academy of Art in figurative painting, she lived and worked in the city for 10 years, before moving to a farm in rural New Jersey. Although her paintings are rooted in portraiture, in recent years they have become divorced from the figure entirely. Currently Hamill is working on a virtual reality project. She is represented by FMLY Gallery in New York City.
