After getting married and moving to the West Coast, he began to work with oils, acrylics and other mediums. In 2004, desiring a place to live offering four seasons, Hamman and his family moved to Atlanta. Now residing in Sugar Hill, Hamman is an active member in the North Gwinnett Artist Association.
