Amanda was born in Melbourne in 1953 and grew up in the wonderful, isolated and as yet undiscovered artistic bush environmental haven of Eltham, surrounded by the artists, artisans, architects, poets, potters, writers and film directors of that era. She has been involved with art all her life, selling her first oil painting at ten, winning the school prize for art, making official logos for 60’s bands and suburban fete posters all before she was 14.
She went on to complete a Chemistry degree and teach Maths for a few years but the overpowering innate need to create art never left. She has spent her life as a professional artist dedicated to traditional realist impressionism in watercolour, her chosen medium, because of its spontaneity and unpredictability.
For details of awards, publications, society memberships, exhibitions, lectures and demonstrations, teaching DVD’s and national and international painting workshops please contact Amanda by email.
