After many years of travel and living overseas, Amanda Morton settled here in New Zealand with family in 1997.

Family and business needs put artistic endeavours on the back burner to simmer, until a number of years ago when easel and brush began to rule again.

Whether painting landscape or figurative pieces, Amanda focused on creating a sense of mood or movement.

Amanda's palate is restrictive, examining how light peeks through the clouds or touches upon the figure.

Concentrating recently on figurative work, in particular life drawing, has allowed experimentation with a variety of mediums and techniques, always looking to push boundaries.

This exhibition reflects Amanda's interest in the human form, unadorned and unveiled.

From simple charcoal drawings through to more fleshed out works in oils and watercolours, these pieces have all had their beginnings in the life drawing studio.

They are a moment captured, seeking the viewers attention, inviting a second look.
