Amy is a painter, printmaker, knitter, maker, writer and reader housed at Backlit Gallery. She told us “I love colour and patterns and drawing portraits of strong sassy characters.” And that’s exactly what Amy created for Place, using our windows as a canvas.
Amy is inspired by the weird and wonderful, clashing colours, the natural world, history, fashion and folklore – and it doesn’t stop with windows of course. “I can’t say I focus on one specific method of making – I’m a Jacqueline of all trades, whether it’s print or digital work or painting or collage or surface design. I’m always doing or making something and whatever the result is chances are it’ll be bright and covered in detail.”
