Visit my garden studio in Kingsclere to see where and how I work.
This year, pen and ink has become much more significant for me in terms of finished art. Both of my works in the flagship INSIGHT exhibition at The Base, Newbury, feature this technique – and both have now sold.
There is, however, plenty of my work still available to view or buy here in Kingsclere – and, with three other artists opening their studios in the village, there is every reason to venture out in this direction!
Other artists in Kingsclere:
I’m very pleased to say that I will be at the Surrey Contemporary Art Fair in Esher next month.
I will be on stand 84, which I am sharing with Kristin Rawcliffe, a fabulous artist whose recent solo exhibition in London featured dynamic portraits of people transformed by their passions. Preparations are well underway and we are both looking forward to the experience…
I have a limited number of complimentary preview tickets (for the evening before the fair starts, 15 March) and I would love to see you there. Please contact me if you would like a ticket.
I also have a few complimentary day tickets available.
There are currently six of my artworks in the window of Kintbury Corner Stores.
The windows of the village shop have been smartened up by Simon Downer of Berkshire estate agents Downer and Co, and artists from Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire have been offered the use of central three, which have panelling and picture shelves for the purpose.
I keep a list of exhibitions (past, present and future) on an external site.

This is where it all began. In 2011, I started a Blogspot for my art. It became www.amandabatesart.co.uk when I acquired that web address, and then it became blog.amandabatesart.co.uk. I’ve retired it now, to enable greater integration of blog posts with other parts of my new web site. Some of the content has already been transferred, some will be later on, and some won’t ever be. But the old blog is still intact, still blog.amandabatesart.co.uk and you can view it by clicking here.
