Hamish Berchem was born in Ayshire Scotland and attended Ardrossan Academy Scotland with additional art studies at Kelvin Grove, Scotland. Then he was shipped to England to attend Rossall School for Boys and was awarded the school drawing prize from 1946 to '48. In 1947 Hamish obtained a "Distinction" in art at Oxford and Cambridge School certificate examinations. He concentrated on watercolours and India ink drawings. In 1964 he graduated with honours in History and English from University of Toronto and in 1968 with a MA in history with major studies of Diplomacy, War and Power.

Most of his working life was spent at sea in the Royal Navy, Merchant Marine, Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Government Research fleet. The subjects of his artwork are predominately ships and marine scenes.
