Gilly Hatch is a painter and print maker. Born and trained in America, she has spent most of her adult life in the UK, having moved here in 1971.
She studied print making with Seong Moy, and received an MFA degree from Columbia University in Painting, where she worked with Phillip Guston. In the 1960s she was part of a small group, selected by Mark Rothko, for looking at and discussing each other’s work.
Until recently, Hatch’s time was divided between her studio and freelance teaching. She devised and delivered courses for, among others: University College, London History of Art Department; The National Gallery; The Courtauld Institute Galleries; The Wallace Collection. She still gives the occasional lecture, but has decided to concentrate on studio work.
Hatch exhibits in the UK and USA and, and has work in private, as well as, public collections, including the V & A.
