Amanda Richmond

I have painted and drawn all my life. Lately I have begun to attend summer schools and weekend workshops to ensure that I don’t get lazy or complaisant.  I used to be limited to monochrome compositions, but as I have got older have begun to find colour more important in my work. Currently I am particularly interested in the juxtapositioning of contrasting shapes and textures. So this summer I have brought in flowers from my garden, such as catmint and roses, and set their delicate shapes against either quite industrial objects, such as a chrome toaster, or objects with substantial weight and presence, such as a blue Chinese ginger jar.
