Encouragement of art in buckinghamshire

Amanda Curbishley NAPA


I feel a connection to light, shape and colour in nature which is reflected in my work. Using acrylic and mixed media I try to incorporate bright colours and textures into my paintings, which lean toward the semi abstract. Although my subjects are varied I now specialise in marine art.

I am a regular exhibitor around Buckinghamshire including at the Obsidian Gallery, the Upstairs Gallery, Bucks Art Society Exhibitions, Bucks Open Studios, Bucks County Museum and various art festivals.

I have also exhibited at the Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibition and the ING Discerning Eye exhibition, both at the Mall Galleries in central London and the LLewelyn Alexander gallery in Waterloo.

I have sold to private collections both home and abroad.

I am a member of the National Acrylic Painters Association, the Buckinghamshire Art Society, the Oxford Art Society and member of the Visual Images Group. I teach a drawing and painting class at the Queens Park Arts Centre and guest tutor at other local groups.
