The i2 Art Summer Exhibition is still going strong with work from many wonderful Artists both new to i2Art and regular contributors.
Two i2Art favourites whom we have asked to return once more to i2Art as part of the Summer Exhibition are Amanda Sheldrake and Amanda Clark.
Both Artists create paintings that are both magical and mystical but in very different ways.
Amanda Sheldrake has been creating works of art for many years, selling to collectors worldwide. She is also commissioned to do mural designs, window painting and portrait painting.
“I have always been inspired by travelling to different environments and particularly by the intense joys of nature which I respond to with my vibrant use of colour.”
Amanda likes to explore many different media and uses them to inform the piece of art I am inspired to create. The essence of the enjoyment in my work is displayed in the diversity of subject, design and colour.
“I would simply like to share with you my love for life through my creativity”
Amanda’s paintings are a rich tapestry of colour, fairytale, myth and legend. Inspired by the magical and mysterious tales she has been reading and studying since childhood and the enchanting English countryside where she has lived all her life.
The colours she uses in each piece of art portrays the mood and essence of a tale that has been told through the centuries, but with a contemporary twist. Each piece of Amanda’s art is painted in jewel like colours with acrylic paint, adding layers, glazes and fine detail and sometimes mica for iridescent texture.
For very special commissions, Amanda makes her own paints using egg tempura and natural pigments.
