Amanda Oliphant graduated from Liverpool John Moore’s University with a BA Hons (1st class) in Fine Art in 2005 followed by a one year Fellowship at Wirral Metropolitan College in 2006, where an exhibition at the Williamson Art Gallery showed an extensive collection of her work. Amanda then undertook further study with an MA in Art as Environment at Miriad, Manchester Metropolitan University.
Amanda’s work has developed over a number of years through a wide range of disciplines including sculpture, new media, drawing, installation and most recently, painting within the landscape itself.
Amanda says ‘I am being driven by the elements that collide everyday but also by the peaceful serenity of a place. My rough studies help to build a painterly story, expressing many layers that sometimes I have to walk away from, find time to reflect, and then return. For me they result in ‘reflective landscapes’.
