Amanda Horvath is a contemporary artist with a unique approach to painting, producing vibrant, colourful and highly textured paintings. Achieving a B A Hons (first class) in fine art Amanda went on to lecture in painting and printmaking. Now painting full time from her studio in the Peak District she is influenced by the wild landscape of her home and is renowned for forests, meadow flowers and seascapes, which are increasingly popular.
“Painting is a response to the beautiful landscape around me, the experience of being in the place is as much an important part of the process as drawing. I attempt to capture the spirit of the land and that quiet sense of tranquillity that coexists with a closeness to the natural world. This affinity with nature has grown from childhood and my past experiences”
After taking preliminary notes en plein air Amanda works in the studio translating her drawings on canvas using various mark making techniques and palette knives to create a highly textured finished painting, which lies somewhere between abstraction and realism. Her work has found homes with private collectors worldwide.
