What's On

36. Amanda Smart

Painting and drawing mostly acrylic and more recently in oil on canvas.

I indicate position and relationship by placement and arrangement of object and shapes within my paintings. I love to collect vintage objects and these are often used as 'characters' in my works. Old vases to me are fascinating - practical, decorative, female, protective, life-giving. Recently my work has taken me into the direction of 'profile' or faces/portraits.

My professional background is in graphic design. I currently work part-time at the Mahara Gallery and am Mum to Acacia, Theo & Lucy.

Painting is my place to explore and find myself drawn deeper into, lost late at night often!
