A beautiful place in Argyll, Scotland.
I captured a beautiful photo of a wonderful sunset a few years ago in Winter and was waiting for the right moment to paint it.
So here is it!

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
Its been ages I know. I've struggled to be creative for the last year or so. Forcing it when I had to for the odd commission that came along.  Around Christmas I started to vaguely notice my eyes weren't seeing so well.  So... eventually I went to see an optician and I have long sight.  Which means I basically need to wear glasses all the time.  I find painting quite difficult - the close up detail is hard to focus on.  On the positive, I can see generally and my work paid for my glasses - which was a nice wee bonus.  I also look amazingly geeky with my dark rims! :D

My art recently has been surfacing.  I had a wonderful holiday in argyll with my family and I drew almost every day!  :D  Amazing! 
I was drawing my kids mainly and some landscapes.
Art for the soul, Art for sanity...  I have to do a little bit of painting at least every other night now or I will go mental. 

My stroke journal people have moved away from their Wiley Blackwell publishers - so it seems I may not be painting brains again this year.  Sad!  But aparently this is the way publishers are going. 

Original art rocks!!  Use artists where you can!

Say Hi if you remember me?  I'd love a wee chat!
