Born a Lancashire Lass, Amanda now lives in Ascot with her husband, two children and her two dogs. Currently she spends most of her time working in her studio painting and experimenting with different mediums and techniques.
Amanda studied Fine Art after leaving school then went on to University (DeMonfort) to continue her studies in Art, Fashion and Textiles for which she received a BA Hons degree.
Undoubtedly this background training has had an impact on the way Amanda creates her artwork, but perhaps her biggest influences have come from her extensive travels around the World. Travelling both as a young designer and later accompanying her husband on many overseas postings.
Being immersed in the natural landscapes and scenery, traditions and cultural diversity of these many countries have all influenced and inspired Amanda’s work. From Europe to the Middle East and Africa, India to the Far East, Australia and America, all have left their mark.
Amanda’s latest collection of Artworks she has called ‘Tree Life’ and reflects her fascination with Trees and the life within. The twists, turns and textures of the gnarled trunks, roots, branches and earth. Overlapping and irregular leaves with their blended colours and abundance.
Her aim is to move the viewer over the canvas to discover hidden gems and humorous quirks. To bring a smile to the onlooker with a touch of fantasy in a World where anything is possible.
Each one of Amanda’s artworks is completely unique and she brings the canvas to life by using a variety of mixed media and a combination of both painting and printing techniques.
The use of iridescent acrylic colours and gold leaf with the addition of tiny glass beads and other textured and crackling mediums help breathe life and movement into her pieces. She also uses both artificial and natural materials to create the three dimensional look.
