Amy studied Graphic Design (Illustration) at Norwich School of Art & Design, graduating in 2007, and shortly thereafter left for China where she spent three years living, working and travelling.
Since 2012 she has been a tutor in the Creative Department at East Coast College, working with Level 3 students within Drawing, Illustration and Fine Art.
Her work is nearly always informed by line, shape, colour and composition. Whether this be a soft landscape, architectural structure or simply an abstract piece, it is these simple yet powerful visual elements to which she is constantly drawn.
There are often two main themes occurring within her work: the natural world, in the form of patterns, textures, marks, lines and shapes; or the structural elements of more industrial landscapes. She especially enjoys the juxtaposition of these two elements when they come together.
Amy’s work spans many mediums, from print, drawing and digital to – more recently – her focus on collage. Her collage work is a purely intuitive process which focuses largely on shape, colour and composition, and the connections of these shapes and colours to one another: how they meet or overlap, lean, balance or support each other.
She comments: “I see colour, composition and basic forms as a primary way to create narrative. While creating a piece, many other shapes are forming for future work: every fragment is kept and, at some point, reintroduces itself.”
