About me

Amy is an artist and maker working on a range of creative projects that are always driven by creating a sense of fun, playfulness and spreading joy. Her bold use of colour, innate sense of pattern and whimsical drawing style has been utilised as set designs for film, festival installations and interior print designs. It is this lively aesthetic has led her to be selected for TexSelect, exhibit at Premier Vision (Paris), work as an artist in residency for Cosmique Global (New Delhi), and exhibit at Brainchild Festival. Her work can also be found at Oliver Bonas, Lemonhead Print, Something About Magazine and Utelier. With a strong passion for community based art, she has currently worked as an artist in residency within primary schools in South East London where she runs art workshops in painting, printing, 3D sculpture and murals. Amy graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 2015 where she studied printed textile design and currently lives and works in London.
