Amanda Curbishley is based in Aylesbury and is a contemporary artist who works in acrylics and mixed media.
I started painting in 2002 and although my subjects are varied I now specialise in marine art.
I feel a connection to light, shape, colour and texture in the world around me which is reflected in my work. I love the versatility of acrylic and by using acrylic and mixed media I try to incorporate bright colours and textures into my paintings, which lean toward the semi abstract.
I am a regular exhibitor around Buckinghamshire including at the Obsidian Gallery, Bucks County Museum, Bucks Art Society Exhibitions, Bucks Open Studios and other art festivals. I have sold to private collections both home and abroad.
This year my work was selected from over 1,100 submissions to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading marine artists. This Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibition is at the Mall Galleries in central London from 28th September – 8th October. I have also had work selected for the ING Discerning Eye exhibition at the same venue.
I am a member and secretary of the Buckinghamshire Arts Society and member of the Visual Images Group. I teach an art class at the Queens Park Arts Centre, Aylesbury, and guest tutor at other groups throughout Buckinghamshire.
