Amanda Drinkwater Artist Statement
I originally trained as a graphic designer and worked in advertising. Although this training gave me broad spectrum drawing skills, it was very rigid and I longed to do other techniques.
So I did several mixed-media courses and later a 3 year City & Guilds watercolour course (levels 2 & 3).
The work I produced for this course was chosen to be entered for a national gold award.
Unfortunately I didn't win but it was nice to get nominated. From this I was offered part-time teaching at Denbigh College which eventually led me to start my own lessons.
My style is very eclectic and I love all media but mostly I love the challenge of trying to capture movement in many of my paintings.
I currently do workshop lessons and demonstrations for Art Societies and Clubs in the area
