Holding credentials in Craft, Fine Art and Costuming, Hamlyn uses craft-practices to mediate embodied experience and memory. She blends the technical and conceptual - recognizing hands respond to their tacit subjective experience. Intrigued by textures, ideas, clothing, the world and being in it, she believes objects and garments have power to absorb time, conjure experience, and hold story.

Her work has been selected as a Salt Spring National Art Prize 2017 Finalist, winning Best in Show at TOAF (2014, 2019), and supported by residencies at the Banff Centre, Harbourfront Centre, the Burren College of Art, Salt Spring Arts Council, and Barefoot College, Tanzania, where she helped re-build Bee-Keeping suits as social-enterprise.

She is co-founder of dance theatre company Frog in Hand, creating sets, costumes and props.
