About Amy

IMG_7044.JPG

Amy Shuckburgh, born in 1977, is a fine artist based in west London. Her work encompases landscape, still life, as well as figures, and is notable for its expressive painterly style as well as its interest in abstraction.

While Amy’s commissioned portraits of children and family groups remain precise and sensitively seen, her landscapes of Cornwall, Wales, France and inner London explore an instinctive mark-making and use of colour.

Her still life is influenced by Mary Fedden, Scottish colourists and Henri Matisse, and some of it can be seen currently exhibited at The Art Shop and Gallery, Wales.

Amy’s on-going series reflecting on Motherhood draws on a range of influences, including Mary Cassatt, Chantal Joffe, Mary Kelly & Joaquin Sorolla, using vivid loose lines to explore the emotional bonds between mother and child as well as the physicality of mothering.

Her Motherhood series will be exhibited at 25 Blythe Road in February 2019.
