Amanda is a Brisbane artist specializing in artists books. In 2008 she completed a Masters of Fine Art through RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia, in which she explored the idea of change as a central theme in life.
Amanda came to art in her early thirties after developing chronic fatigue syndrome. Previously she worked as an occupational therapist. She studied ceramics at Southbank TAFE in Brisbane, winning the Craft Queensland Prize on graduation. Her artworks include artists’ books, installations, photographs and prints. Her background working with clay has resulted in an affinity for the materiality of various media, including unfired clay, porcelain, wax and paper. She has participated in exhibitions throughout Australia, in the UK and the US. This year her work will be shown in France for the first time. It is also held in both private and public collections nationally and internationally.
