Amanda Gorman is an Australian Multidisciplinary Artist who creates works of art from contemporary ink pieces, along with children’s illustrations to fine art sketches. Amanda has always been endlessly creative and draws inspiration constantly from the world around her. Be it a leaf on the wind or a pattern on a shirt, she is forever gaining new ideas around her and sees the world as her muse. Early in her life she studied drawing and colour and has ever since been perfecting her skills through graphic design studies, illustration and watercolour course work.
Some of her most prevailing works are her realism sketches of people and animals where she scans her tirelessly hand drawn pieces and reworks them using her digital skills to create popping colours and shapes over, under and around them.
Illustration is another one of her sought after styles with her recently published children’s book ‘Too tight for Tilly’ seeing great success after its December 2020 release. Currently she is illustrating two children’s books with the first due to be ready for release mid 2021.
It brings her immense joy creating her little characters with their whimsical ways.
Her recent collection 'UNDERCURRENT' features large scale Ink pieces inspired by the sea.
The Abstract nature of these bodies of work allows Amanda to step away from the accuracy her realism work requires and be able to create billowing ink flows with robust pigments on a large scale.
Amandas art has been featured in various publications listed below . She has also featured in a series of art shows, art prizes and her own solo shows.
She lives in Tallai here on the Gold Coast with her family and enjoys creating In her home studio.
