P.J. Hammond resides on the Canadian border in Newport, Vermont. In 1990 she was invited to have a one-woman exhibition in Iceland, after having gone there to paint on two previous occasions. Her paintings have since been exhibited in Quebec, Canada, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, Texas, North Dakota and Vermont. The exhibition in Red Deer was of her Icelandic work shown in connection with an Icelandic Symposium, as was her Icelandic Show in North Dakota in 2001.
During this period, Mrs. Hammond had a series of six Vermont Wildflowers lithographs printed by the Stinehour Press. November 1998 saw the publication of her book "Traveling with Wildflowers from Newfoundland to Alaska" which was later republished in soft cover by a Canadian firm. This led to her speaking engagements in Denali National Park, Alaska, St Johns, Newfoundland and many other places.
Mrs. Hammond is a graduate of Wellesley College in Massachusetts. As a youngster she studied watercolor with Elsa Bley and, after college, went for criticism to Hyman Bloom in Boston. Her work is found throughout the United States, Canada and in Europe. She works primarily in watercolor and acrylics. Five trips to Alaska, an invitation to paint in St. Croix, the Virgin Islands, and Florida have continued to broaden her scope. Although wildflowers have always engrossed her, her landscapes and other very original art continue to identify her as a truly outstanding artist.
