Amy Leigh Bird

‘At Low Tide’




Artist biography

Amy Leigh Bird has always been inspired by the natural world and she has have enjoyed exploring new ways in which to display her work and collections.

Amy's work celebrates material, both natural and manmade and she is drawn to the detritus on the shores of rivers, seas, and lakes, which are regularly ignored by fellow mudlarkers and beach scavengers alike. Her belief is that the attitude of disposability prevalent in today’s world can only be confronted once more value is invested in the materials that we consider as waste. Through art, we can reveal new perspectives by elevating these materials beyond images of neglect.
