Amy is a landscape and figurative artist whose new work is full of colour and energy. Her drawings in pastel, mixed media collages and watercolours convey a sense of delight in the world, through playful and instinctive interpretations of scenes of bluebell woods, hillsides, gardens and still life compositions.

She grew up in west London where she has lived for most of her life. Her London studio was the Hammersmith home of artists Mary Fedden and Julian Trevelyan from the 1930s until 2012. For the past few years, Amy has made many drawings of the studios, their living quarters and riverfront garden, documenting the artists’ property before it undergoes total renovation. Some of these drawings are included in this collection.

Amy trained as an artist at L’Ecole des Beaux Arts, the Royal Drawing School, the Slade School of Fine Art, and the St Ives School of Painting. She studied English at Leeds University and has a Masters degree in curating. Amy is an elected Associate Artist at Unison Colour and in 2019 she won the Heatherley’s Award for Drawing, for her depiction of motherhood. Amy’s drawing of Harold Pinter, done from sittings in the playwright’s final years, now hangs at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London.

Amy has recently moved to live in Somerset with her husband and three children.
