After studying Sculpture and 2-Dimensional Design in the early ‘80’s, Amanda worked as a commercial designer in London and Sydney before settling on a home in Speerwah, FNQ.
Since relocating she returned to her sculptural roots – experimenting with a number of mediums before discovering wire whilst fixing a fence, and the Multi-AwardedAmandadesignedwire sculptures began. Inspired by the animals she shares her rainforest home with, Amanda utilizes salvaged materials where possible, starting with wire of different gauges twisting and turning till it comes to life. If appropriate, she hand decorates them with glass and nylon beads to give them a flash of colour – as with their living inspirations. Every creation is unique, individual and hand-crafted.
