  • Biography

      Amanda Horvath is a contemporary artist producing vibrant colourful and highly textured original paintings. After studying fine art painting and printmaking at Sheffield Hallam University, where she achieved a B A Hons (1st class) Amanda subsequently lectured in colleges. She now practices full time as an artist from her studio in Derbyshire.


    “Painting is a response to the beautiful landscape around me, I attempt to capture the spirit of the forest and the quiet tranquillity that exists in these peaceful places. Moved by the ethereal light filtering through leaves in woodlands and dramatic contrasting shadows, I have a passion for expressing nature in beautiful colours, whilst imparting a meditative calm. This affinity with nature has grown from early childhood and my past experiences."

    Working from observation of nature Amanda gathers visual information with a sketchbook or camera and often begins a canvas en plein air, finishing these preliminary pieces in her studio. Working expressively in acrylics or oils, often with a palette knife or other mark making techniques she applies layer upon layer until the painting reaches a natural conclusion, forming contemporary paintings that lie somewhere between abstraction and realism. Her paintings have found homes with private collectors worldwide.
