Amanda is based in East London. She is duel nationality- Swedish and British. Her grandmother Carin was an Icon painter and has been an influence on Amanda’s art. Amanda works in Health and Social Care. Having begun her journey at Art school this was an unexpected career path, but has proven to be a passion and is in keeping with her interest in what it means to be human and vulnerable artist painting.
I aim to trigger a particularly strong emotion, different feelings. Sometimes, I hope to create something other-worldly. It’s a wish or a hope for more. I don’t believe in life after death but wish there was something else. Each art work is (in a sense)a small part that belongs to a larger collection. I see the different paintings as part of a larger body of work that reflect on the broader tapestry of my life. A Gestalt.
