Amylee’s ‘floral abstractions’ unfold in a glittering, textured palette, dotted with light. They demonstrate her personal evolution, her shifting inspirations, her travels and her thoughts. Although her early work was almost entirely figurative, over time she has become increasingly interested in nature and gardens, flowers and the beauty and eloquence of even a single petal. She spends as much time outdoors as she can, and practices Shinrin-Yoku, Japanese forest meditation. Her images have become increasingly fresh, and combine a meditative stillness with a sense of compressed energy, ready to burst forth in what she calls a ‘blossom blast.’ Recently she has been painting on square canvas and has been exploring the impact of large statement pieces which are bold and radiant, yet have a serene, almost soothing, quality.
Born in 1978 in the South of France, studies at the Universities of Toulouse and Montpellier and now lives in the Auvergne.
Alongside her painting she is a successful writer and broadcaster and is a monthly contributor to London magazine GreatArt. As well as appearing in many art related magazines, her paintings have been featured everywhere from book jackets to TV shows.
Amylee sells her work across Europe, America and Hong Kong, and world famous fashion designer John Galliano owns one of her paintings.
