Amy Hooton, artist born Edinburgh 1980. Graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2003. A trained sculptor, turned painter whilst living in China in 2005. Highly inspired by Chinese abstract ink landscapes, and combining this fascination with previous experience of working with a Batik artist in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Amy undertook a residency at the Vermont Studio Centre, USA, in May 2005, where she developed the beginnings of her style you see today. Once Amy left Asia she had to translate her style for Western art materials with interesting results.

Amy’s painting style has refined over the years. She now concentrate on abstracted landscapes and animals, colourful paintings that transport the viewer into fantastical realms away from the rain and cold, invoking sublime versions of familiar landscapes and wildly abstracted colourful animals. Painted worlds filled with intricate detail that portray her obsession with the painting process, blending of colours and textures. Experimentations with inks and accidents. Amy’s other artistic influences include Kandinski and Klimt.
