Hawkins’ paintings often cause viewers to ponder things like “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”  His works pay homage to the beauty and brokenness of humanity, engaging the vivid imagery of Scripture and a rich and deeply spiritual faith. He creates distinctive works through transcendental compositions, high contrast narratives, and expressive mark-making.

Besides working as a professional studio artist since 2001, Hawkins also has been an associate professor of art at Valdosta State University since 2011. His work is shown at Mason Fine Art gallery in Atlanta and Anne Neilson Fine Art gallery in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Switzer Gallery tours are available with prior arrangements by calling 850-484-2550.
