Textile Artist Cornwall

Cornish artist Amanda Richardson hand dyes fabrics to create textile collages of details of landscape: rocks, water and plants.

A graduate of Goldsmiths’ College, London, Amanda pioneered a technique for combining fabrics such as silks, satins and velvets to form richly coloured textile collages. These dynamic artworks vary with changing light continually presenting a fresh experience to the viewer.

Widely travelled, the artist lived on San Juan Island in Washington State for ten years. Having returned to Cornwall she continues selling her work internationally both to private and corporate clients. Her art can also be seen in her working studio in the Penberth Valley near the Land's End, surrounded by the exuberance of her garden that provides much of the inspiration for her art.
