About me
After being diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in 2015, Amatina was inspired to share the unique sensory experiences of life on the autism spectrum through her art. Working around the theme of neurodiversity, Amatina has transformed her signature style of abstract colourism into a unique, interactive, multi-sensory experience that invites viewers to engage on a level that works for them. For Amatina, art heals and transforms, and expands the experience of living. Her mission includes creating communities through the combination of art and advocacy around the globe. She has volunteered with children’s arts organisations, undertaken residencies, and had her works displayed in both fine art and community venues in seven countries, as she pushes for artwork to be experienced by a wider variety of audiences. Amatina has been awarded Arts Council England (ACE) funding twice, including the ‘Developing your Creative Practise’ fund, and has recently been featured as one of the Top 50 Interesting and Influential Neurodiverse Women of 2019. ​ “My vision is colour. My heartbeat is rhyme. My mind expands with bursts of line, shape, and form. Art imbues each moment of life, every cell of my being. My hands tell my stories as I connect with humanity and explore meaning through creativity and art. The voyage continues.”
