My name is Amanda Curbishley and I am a contemporary artist who works in acrylics and mixed media. 

I feel a connection to light, shape and colour in nature which is reflected in my work. I love the versatility of acrylic and by using acrylic and mixed media I try to incorporate bright colours and textures into my paintings, which lean toward the semi abstract. 

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

I have exhibited at the Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibition and the ING Discerning Eye exhibition, both at the Mall Galleries in central London, at ‘Not the Royal Academy’ at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery, London and at The Crypt Gallery, St. Ives with members of the National Acrylic Painters Association. I held a solo art exhibition at Claydon Estate Courtyard, 2018. I have also exhibited with the Oxford Art Society and in ‘The People’s Landscape exhibition’ at Claydon House.

 I have sold to private collections both home and abroad.

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