Amanda was born in the 70s in Lincolnshire, England. She gained a First Class Honours degree in Fine Art from Nene College, University of Leicester in 1995.
"My work describes human relationships. I am looking for the universal and the extraordinary in life’s ordinary moments. The textures of hair, fabric and skin and their luminescent qualities fascinate me in my figure studies. I take a minimal approach to the balancing of shape and tone while exploiting light effects, body language and colour symbolism and a painterly surface to set atmosphere or mood. I believe in making my work accessible and involving; paintings we can all relate to.
I often paint scenes about life rather than simply depicting it. Sometimes there is nostalgia, especially in the images of childhood and street scenes. If you feel a sense of yearning…. “wish I was there”, “it reminds me of…..” then I’ve done my job right."
