AmyGoodrich's Shop Announcement


I am a multi-disciplinary fine artist. I graduated from Saint Martins School of Art with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture and also as a post graduate in Character Animation.

Since 1995 - I have been inspired in two quite diverse trains of thought: Firstly my more abstract sculptural work (exploring the issues of fertility) in which I work in the clinical, often austere media of glass, latex, wax and perspex. These pieces have been exhibited globally, including at the Barbican and the Riverside Studios , London.
Secondly, my soft sculptural works (Formally known as Portobello Bears) have been exhibited throughout the world for this last decade and a half by specialist exclusive stores and galleries.
Now I am also exploring the magical world of animation and experimental film.
Beginning in 2010, I moved towards giving these characters life. This is an ongoing project for me - bringing together my background in music, love of film and theatre and also using the mathematical side of my brain which is key to this incredibly meticulously structured art form. You will be the first to hear of my projects as I complete them!

Thanks for your interest and continued support - I am so very grateful for all the enthusiasm and compliments I receive from you all, my treasured collectors.

Meanwhile back to bears ---- my passion for creating one of a kind unique characters remains as strong as ever and I am now going to be showcasing new creations here on etsy.

Love to hear from you all
Big hugs,
Amy xx
