Amanda Oliphant graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art at LJMU followed by an MA in Art as Environment at MMU. Here an understanding as to why her work is rooted within Art and Ecology became transparent. For her, it is about forming a visual vocabulary that reveals and renews our kinship with the natural world, exposing elements that every day go unnoticed. This is at the core of Amanda’s art practice and can be seen through her processes of making and sharing art.
“For me the landscape is not clearly seen or understood until it has been explored through layers of research, experience and physical responsive mark making as seen in my paintings, hoping to give nature a true value.”
Amanda exhibits nationally and internationally, has collaborated with public art events including London 2012 Olympic Games, supports local art groups, and runs creative workshops from her North West studio ‘a p o a r t’ on the Wirral Peninsula.
