About Amanda Clark
Amanda’s paintings are a rich tapestry of colour, fairytale, myth and legend. Inspired by the magical and mysterious tales she has been reading and studying since childhood and the enchanting English countryside where she has lived all her life.
The colours she uses in each piece of art portrays the mood and essence of a tale that has been told through the centuries, but with a contemporary twist.
“The old fairytales have such an other-worldly presence that can take the reader or listener on a fantastic journey of wonder and a special connection that is passed on through the ages. When I’m painting, I’m naturally on a journey of my sub-conscious, and the images are truly of ‘another world’ which I feel the fairytales and myths are born”.
Each piece of Amanda’s art is painted in jewel like colours with acrylic paint, adding layers, glazes and fine detail and sometimes mica for iridescent texture. For very special commissions, Amanda makes her own paints using egg tempura and natural pigments.
Amanda’s family are all of the creative kind, whether it be music, art and crafts or writing. She has illustrated 4 books for her brother Robin Clark and has art published in ‘Earth Pathways Diaries’. She is hoping to write and illustrate a book of her own in the near future.
