Amanda Jackson was born in the 1970s in Lincolnshire, England. She received a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art, from the University of Leicester in 1995. Nowadays, Amanda has exhibited widely across the UK.
Amanda’s work describes human relationships whilst looking for the extraordinary in life’s ordinary moments.
“The textures of hair, fabric and skin and their luminescent qualities fascinate me in my figure studies”, says Amanda. She takes a minimal approach to the balancing of shape and tone.
The body language, the colour symbolism as well as a painterly surface, help Amanda to set her moody atmospheres.
Amanda Jackson believes in making her work accessible and involving, creating paintings we all can relate to. She often paints scenes about life rather than simply depicting it. Sometimes there is nostalgia, especially in the images of childhood and street scenes.
Amanda hopes for that sense of yearning, “If the person who sees my work thinks: “I wish I was there”, “it reminds me of…”, then I’ve done my job right.”
