Amy Shuckburgh, born in 1977, is a fine artist based in west London. Her work encompasses landscape, still life, as well as figures, and is notable for its expressive painterly style as well as its interest in abstraction.
Amy’s work reflecting on Motherhood will be exhibited at the Gallery @ 25 Blythe Road between 11th and 17th February 2019. In this series Amy uses vivid loose lines to explore the emotional bonds between mother and child, as well as the physicality of mothering. The work draws on a range of influences, including Mary Cassatt, Chantal Joffe, & Mary Kelly.
Amy’s commissioned portraits of children and family groups remain precise and sensitively seen, and yet her still life compositions and her landscapes of Cornwall, Wales, France and inner London, explore an instinctive mark-making and use of colour.
Amy trained at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, the St Ives School in Cornwall, The Royal Drawing School, and the Slade School of Fine Art, in London.
She has a First Class Degree in English Literature from Leeds University and a Masters Degree in Curating from Goldsmiths College, London.
Amy is self-represented and is available for commission.
