My Bio
Hi, I'm Amy. I'm a painter, a photographer and have been known to do a bit of sculpting, batik and crafts of all sorts. So look out for random side tracking in my gallery!

I studied Fine Art (Sculpture), at Edinburgh College of Art and History of Art at Edinburgh University. Graduated 2003. Since then, I have travelled in Asia extensively, studying Batik techniques in Indonesia and Chinese painting in Beijing. My art these days is a mixture of all these influences. Often Abstract, sometimes surreal, usually colourful.

In 2010 my baby boy Hunter was born, and in 2012 my baby girl Talyn joined the crew, so I am blessed and incredibly busy! I do my best to fit in a part time job, freelance design work, photography and a little bit of self indulgant arting whenever I get the chance!

Please feel free to ask any questions. Always interested in serious commission enquiries.

I hope you enjoy my gallery.

Current Age: 33, Current Residence: Edinburgh, Scotland

How is it possible that a west Scottish coastline that I have returned to, and painted a hundred times in my life, has never changed; yet chaos is constantly reshaping the world around us? Where is the medium? And what shall that medium be? For me, it's Art. "Colour is a means of exerting direct influence on the soul." Kandinski You will tell from my art, that I like colour. I find it hues inviting, the blending of colours obsessional. Like a
