Joseph Sydney Hallam was born in 1898 in Manchester, England and immigrated to Canada with his family at the age of 12. He studied art at the Hamilton Technical School and Toronto Central Technical School. J.S. Hallam was born to a generation of artists greatly influenced by the Group of Seven. He worked as an illustrator alongside Franklin Carmichael and often sketched with him in northern Ontario.

As an artist, Hallam was not content just to paint a pretty picture. He was interested in the mood and character of the scene and with people in their natural setting. He once said, “a successful sketch is one which gets across the character of the district in which I am working.”
