Ferris Wheel

Amanda Cook

Painter

I love painting objects that take me back to my own childhood. When taking photographs with a film camera held so much joy, knowing we had that one precious chance to get it right and it could be a few days before finding out. The sweet sound of the coffee grinder in the kitchen followed by the delicious smell of the brew and how exciting it was to get the perfect ice cream scoop, not leaving any remnants under the lever. These are irreplaceable and wonderful memories that I try to capture.

 

I am heavily influenced by the people around me, their hobbies, our memories and conversations. I love painting portraits of any type, as well as iconic objects in nostalgic scenes. I paint in acrylics and watercolour. 

 

The joy I feel delivering a portrait or scene, knowing I have captured a very special moment in time is what drives me to paint more.
