Amy works from her studio in North Norfolk and exhibits in galleries throughout the UK.

"I’m a Norfolk-based painter inspired by the joy and vibrancy of flowers. They are a great vehicle for colour and I thoroughly enjoy selecting, mixing and working into my paints to create a piece that sings. I aim to uplift the viewer with my artwork and feel that I have succeeded in my work if I bring about a smile, a feeling of peace or a moment where all that matters is the beauty of colour and form.
I work in acrylics and use textures and glazes with multiple layers of colour to create interesting and exciting effects. Paint is partially removed and pulled back to reveal hidden colours and I often adorn the painting with goldleaf to illuminate it even further. I also use antique wooden printing blocks, lace and other objects to create patterns and marks to enhance the work.
My compositions are born from observations of pattern, whether man-made or natural, such as a beautiful fabric, a grouping of flowers or a ceramic vase with an interesting glaze. Beauty is woven into the world around us... I aim to seek it out and translate it onto canvas."
