Artist profile

Amanda Hughes

I paint vibrant abstract art. My art journey explores themes of “Connection”. My palette is bold and impacting. Expect to enjoy the interconnection of birds or dancers and shapes often overlapping.


I love the painting process, my bright and joyful palette expresses my feelings of positivity when immersed in the process of painting. My intention is to communicate these feelings and energies with my audience through colourful marks and energetic, intertwining lines.


My Melbourne studio is home, a self-build barn conversion surrounded by agricultural fields an ever-changing  landscape.  There are always animal antics to amuse me and up above skylarks sing in the air.
