Hal is an interdisciplinary artist interested in ceramics, painting and illustrating onto upcycled furniture and textiles. He lived in Scotland for three years to pursue a BA in Communication Design at the Glasgow School of Art, where he graduated in 2019. He now lives in St Leonards-On-Sea and works nearby at his self-built studio in his parents garden.
Hal worked as a photographer for 8 years before he developed his current multidisciplinary process. His photography practice took him around the world capturing people and places, with a keen interest in visual storytelling. This has influenced his illustrative approach to surface decoration and the themes he explores within his ceramic pieces. He likes to juxtapose classical silhouettes with contemporary subject matters, with references to queer culture, film and music.
Hal has been featured in Vogue, Living Etc, House and Garden, Homes and Gardens, Table Magazine and ES Magazine.
