Amanda Phillips

Amanda originally trained as a painter before pursuing a career as a chartered architect. She went on to work as a university tutor at Edinburgh College of Art and Napier University for over a decade teaching architecture, graphic design, product design and drawing. She has won awards in both architecture and painting and now paints full time from her studio in Berwickshire. Of her work she says "I work mostly in acrylic but I like to experiment to keep my work fresh so use different media often on the same painting. Focus is landscape based and I paint the extraordinary in what may look an ordinary view. I use space and order and the conscious decision making process mixed with the fluidity and instinctive movement which comes from using paint."
