Birds and Beasts
Birds, with the gorgeous plumage and great sense of character, lend themselves perfectly to the light reflective, hand-dyed fabrics that characterise Amanda's textile collages. Birds abound in the wooded valley in which she lives and are a continuous presence in her wild garden. Travels to other countries with often flamboyant birds, are also reflected in her collages. A life-long love of lizards is now appearing in Amanda's art. The Iguanas of Mexico have proved irresistible.
