Hello! We are Monica and Scott Hampton, the artists behind Hampton Visual.
After outgrowing our former careers, we started Hampton Visual in January 2018 as a way of reinventing our selves. Each of us had been artists earlier and we sought a return to creative life.
For three years we studied and worked in graphic design: creating logos, becoming hand letterers, and producing a number of products like posters, stickers, and t-shirts.

From those early paintings we learned:
THE ROAD AHEAD
From here our intention is to make the world a little more lovely, one painting and wall at a time, and help our clients transform their spaces into atmospheres of expression.
