Amy’s work has always been inspired by the natural world and she enjoys exploring new ways in which to display her work and collections.
Her work celebrates material, both natural and manmade and is drawn to the detritus on the shores of rivers and seas.
For the last three years she has been exploring the banks of the Thames, studying and collecting bones found on the foreshore. Amy is also interested in the psychology of collecting, why people collect and if collecting is an intrinsic part of our lives.
Amy believes 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”.
