Amy has created artworks depicting the pure joy of childhood and the wonderment that is motherhood. Working with young people as an early career teacher, Amy has found a new passionate approach to creating, becoming nostalgic and reflecting on her own childhood.
Born in England, art blossomed early in life when Amy discovered her maverick Great Grandad’s artworks and poems, and realised “I want to be an artist like Grandad!”
For Amy, art making has always been a meditative and relaxing process often drawing inspiration from fantasy literature and Art Nouveau artists – “once I begin drawing I can get blissfully lost in the details of my drawings”.
These paintings utilise pen and ink, and watercolour techniques adding decorative illustrative elements that characterise Amy’s work.
