Amanda is a wire work artist based in South Wales, UK. Born and bred in Cardiff and primarily self-taught, she was heavily influenced by her artistic family from a very young age. After developing her intricate jewellery designs, Amanda became a full time artist later in life. She quickly evolved and now applies her wire work skills to her more recent work in the form of wire sculptures.
Inspiration comes from nature which is evident in Amanda's trees, often windswept, and carved by the elements, or transformed into tree spirits. Her love of animals is also beginning to influence her more recent work.
Amanda holds qualifications in education and training and enjoys passing on to others her knowledge and skills. Online tutorials, workshops and classes within the local community are all in development.
Amanda’s work can be found exhibited in local galleries, works to commission and regularly attends local handmade and artisan events.
