Amanda Jane originally trained in Fashion and Textiles receiving a Merited Diploma and then went on to get a BA (Hons) Degree in contemporary applied arts at the University of Cumbria. Since graduating in 2011, Amanda has been building up her brand; creating unique gifts and homeware using a combination of photography, screen printing and embroidery. Best known for her restricted beautiful colour palettes and unique style of scarf making.
The artwork is based around the theme of 'Curiouser story telling of childhood memoirs and fairytale landscapes'. Responding to certain places and things with colour, specific ambiences of moods are created within each piece, marrying colour with a feeling. The creation of these colour stories is an important and long process within each piece to recreate a moment in time. A personal place of love, adventure and fairy tales come together to remind us as an adult; what we searched for as a child.
All products start from plain materials that are then hand dyed, stitched then screen printed, making every piece an original. It is important to Amanda that anyone can take home something from the creations. This is why the product ranges from simple earrings up to the high end market installations. Commission pieces great and small are available to order if you enquire through Notonthehighstreet.com
All materials are sourced withing the UK and handmade in England with care.
