So, there have been a few changes but I have drawn and painted over the years.  The work is largely figurative, often with a socio-political element. There is some abstract and landscape work too.  I worked with the Orchestra of the Swan in Stratford for a few years and did some portrait and some synaesthetic work there, in my case painting from music.

I use imagery from all over the place; memory, sketches, photography and popular and press imagery.

Amy Cremmen

Amy is an Oxfordshire artist, heavily inspired by nature and the cycle of life, living in the heart of the countryside. She had art lessons with a private tutor at a young age, which led to a life filled with art, and finding beauty where others fail to see. Amy moved from painting canvas to tattooing skin, with a 4-year apprenticeship aged 19, after a 2-year AVCE Art & Design course. But her earlier influences of traditional painting was too much to ignore, so she started painting more frequently 3 years ago, juggling her time between canvas and skin.

2018 has been an experimental year that has moved Amy from strictly 2D, to introducing 3D into her portfolio; using wood, and resin in some of her newest pieces. Forcing herself out of her comfort zone and breaking down internal rules about art, has challenged and pushed her as an artist.

This collection of work represents some of the natural world that has captured Amy’s eye. Each piece of wood has a history to her; each subject has a story behind it.
