Amanda White's Profile
I am a visual artist working in naive style. Until recently I was a dedicated acrylics-only painter (and occasional printer) but a chance encounter with a pile of my daughters' glossy fashion magazines dumped beside the rubbish bin encouraged me into exploring the wonderful world of cut paper collage ...
Originally trained in theatre design, my exhibition history includes group and solo shows in the UK, Spain and New York. My work is in many private collections and in several corporate and public ones, including the Hogg Robinson Group, Casinos de Tenerife and the Manchester City Art Gallery.
Inspiration comes from browsing in books, mooching in museums and poking around historic houses. I love: history, folk art, English literature - especially English Romanticism, the countryside, the sea, cats and far too many artists to mention...
