An explorer and lover of the natural world, the underwater world and the ever changing elements; Amy takes inspiration for her paintings from her travels, recently Iceland and the dynamic changing weather, and the tides and coastline of Cornwall where she lives. The boundaries of where land and water merge is an ongoing and perhaps never ending focus for the artist. A subtle tonal ranges of colour is used, layer upon layer, inky consistency of oil paint caresses the canvas, often creating misty, watery, unclear images that are half imagined, half real, recalling memories. Amy has exhibited her work internationally, had many solo exhibitions in the UK and has been commissioned by P&O and SAGA Cruises to produce large paintings for their luxury cruise liners. A University College Falmouth Fine art graduate and Midas award winner, Amy is now a tutor at the prestigious St Ives School of painting at Porthmeor studios and a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists. Born in Cornwall, with time spent living in Bristol and London Amy is now settled on the North coast of Cornwall and is current resident at one of Cornwall’s biggest creative hubs – Krowji studios. Amy has been awarded funding for this residency from Cultivator Cornwall and looks forward to developing her practice at Cove Park.
