Born in East Linton, East Lothian, Hardie entered the family business and worked as a carpenter. However, a family connection with the artist, John Pettie, encouraged him to study at the Trustees' Academy in Edinburgh.

He produced portraits, landscapes and genre scenes as well as historical paintings in both oils and watercolour.
