Amanda Mahony is a contemporary Australian artist living in Sydney Australia. Known for her colourful, energetic, textured paintings, she depicts images of animals, figures and landscapes in an abstract, realism style. She describes her inspiration as originating from "where I've been and where I'm going while inspiring others and myself to break free from the limits we tend to put on ourselves". The pursuit of self-discovery and freedom is always at the heart of what she creates.
With an aesthetic eye for colour and curious nature, Amanda is continuously driven to develop and evolve her artistic style through mixed media, contemporary art and classical oil painting techniques. She enjoys seeing the beauty in every day scenes and builds layers until a unique interpretation of colour and texture meet on the canvas. She starts off thin with her mediums and acrylics and builds up many, many coats by applying heavier texture mediums, mark making materials, oil paint and cold wax. The layers, texture and colour are balanced and keenly placed, yet unexpected. Each piece invites and gives a momentous experience.
Amanda studied Fine Arts at the Milan Art Institute and holds a Bachelor of Arts - Media from Macquarie University. She has a background in marketing and project management which has placed her in a position of strength, allowing her to follow her artistic purpose in life. She has been to 22 countries and has friends, family and mentors all over the world.
