Amanda Thesiger trained in painting at Maidstone Art College, the Royal Academy Schools and as a scholar at the British School at Rome. She works in mixed media and is involved in many projects as an arts educator.
Thesiger’s work is rooted in natural history, and she combines a process-led and an intuitive approach, exploring both the dynamic and intricate elements of landscape and natural form. Play, and a ‘what if’ approach is practiced through open-ended drawing, painting, assemblage and printmaking. A kind of distillation shapes her work, as each piece reveals itself gradually, leaving traces of discovery and change.
