Amanda's lively work reflects the characters and stories manifest in her subject. Her current focus is on trees, with an emphasis on arboreal interaction with their surroundings and with people. Her exquisitely detailed pen and ink style is reminiscent of classic fairy tale illustrations, with a counterpoint of modern realism.
This oak tree is on the edge of the village, right next to the main road. At some point in its recent history, somebody hauled a “no dogs” sign up into its branches. There’s a platform up there, too, but it was the red-ringed sign that first drew my attention to this fine tree, half-hidden in the overgrown no-man’s land between road and residence.
