Karl Hamilton-Cox

My name is Karl Hamilton-Cox and I am a full-time artist based in Hereford in England.

I am a full time artist and exhibit regularly in Hereford, London, at major art fairs and other lifestyle shows in the UK.


As an engineer for over 30 years (22 years in the Army - Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) I take precision and accuracy seriously and take an actively realist approach to my art with compositions typically a mixture of illustration to enhance the subject being studied and replicated.

The first serious art was in support of the Morgan Motors Centenary in 2009 where I created and we exhibited a mixture of automotive and other fine art subjects. 

I do portraiture on commission and wildlife subjects.

I specialise in painting on leather with customers ranging from individuals to custom artwork on leather garments and accessories for major fashion brands.
