About Amy

IMG_7044.JPG

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

Her work can be found in private collections around the world, and will be exhibited this year in Galleries in Wales, Wiltshire, Suffolk and Saffron Walden, as well as in London.

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, increasingly explore an instinctive mark-making and use of colour.

Amy’s work reflecting on Motherhood was exhibited in a large joint exhibition at Olympia Auctions in February 2019, alongside the sculptor Arabella Brooke. In her Motherhood work, 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.
