About Amanda Addison

 
 
  • Biography

    Amanda is an artist and author of contemporary fiction (with arty, crafty themes). She holds a degree in illustration from Chelsea School of Art and an MA in Writing the Visual.

    Her painting and collage process begins outdoors (at home in rural Norfolk, or on location around the world) where she walks, sketches and make notes. Back in the studio she paints a feeling or response rather than a concrete/photographic record of places visited. She seeks to explore how the mental and physical landscape presents itself visually, both in the moment – changing seasons and times of day - and through memory. Over the years she has explored themes of the transience and circularity of life, the Earth turning and returning.

    She paints in (oil, acrylic, watercolour) and collage (using vintage fabrics, found objects and gold leaf) onto canvas, board and paper.

    Her work is in collections in the UK and overseas and has appeared in the Guardian Newspaper Art for Sale supplements. She was selected to exhibit at Kettle's Yard Cambridge (by Roger Ackling) Past prizes include the Fish Publishing Book Cover Award (selected by William Crozier). She was recently shortlisted for the Holt Festival Prize

    To write and develop fictitious artworks for the novel, An Amsterdam Affair.

    "I enjoyed this novel for many reasons. It is very well-crafted, carefully constructed from cameo passages which weave together experiences, past and present, of empathetic characters. The connection between the coastal towns of East Anglia and the Netherlands underpins a flow of history, cultures, Art and human relationships, a central pattern in the story being the generational mirroring of mother and son, coming of age in Amsterdam. The role of creative expression in their lives is written with some passion, and it is refreshing to read a narrative that celebrates the positive impact of drawing, painting, and photography on coping with life experiences and self-perception. The story is engaging and also contains some brilliant teenage banter!"
