From beans on toast – to a plastic duck – to a tractor (…or two), I like to make the most of that sudden impulse to paint things.


Biography

Amanda studied Fine Art at Coventry University.

She has been exhibiting since 2009 with paintings selected for shows including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Royal Institute of Oil Painters annual exhibition, Cork Street Open, National Open Art exhibition, Society of Women Artists annual exhibition and Royal Birmingham Society of Artists open portrait exhibition.

She was elected as a member of Chelsea Art Society in 2016.

Amanda tends to work on a small scale and her work encompasses still life, landscapes and portraits. She loves painting from life, making the most of a sudden impulse to paint things and the freedom that oil painting brings.

She is a keen runner, and running across the fields around her home enables her to discover painting spots to return to. Recent work has involved spending time painting tractors on a farm.

Amanda lives and works in Bedfordshire.
