Hamilton Eugene Byrd is the artist and chapter director of the Religious Academies, Chicago.
“I started drawing at an early age, about six years old. I added air brush painting to my skills at age 30, but have been oil painting since age 20, so my media includes watercolor painting and acrylic.
My use of color is the most awesome fun that I share with a small class I teach on the south side of Chicago during the summer at my church.
I’m 59 years old and haven’t stopped learning about my craft. Please enjoy.”
