Growing up in the high country of New Zealand has given Amelia her passion for rural life and livestock. Never satisfied with realistic depictions or colourways, she has breathed life and flair into these animals through texture, gesture and palette, allowing them to take on the role as enthusiastic campaigners for this way of life.
Amelia hopes to challenge preconceived notions and send a message of joy and celebration through her art, reflecting her personal sentiments toward both rural living and people.
Amelia is a self-taught artist. She has work hanging in local and international collections and has been the recipient of several awards. She is represented by The Artist’s Room, Dunedin, NZ. She also regularly exhibits in group and solo exhibitions.
