Aire Valley Arts Amy Charlesworth

I work primarily in oils on canvas and cover a diverse range of subjects, from botanical to landscape, architectural to animals, figurative to industrial machinery and pretty much anything in between; whatever takes my fancy or catches my eye.

Influences come from film and television, magazines or just day to day life. My work is fairly representational, though at times my fondness for dramatizing images comes in the form of playing with shadows and light – I’m partial to the stark contrast of using browns and blacks in conjunction with creams and whites for instance. I’m not a fan of bright colour, but if it’s required I like to try and tone or dull it down to render it less conspicuous, a lot like me.
