spacer amanda hoskin lives and works in Cornwall and studied at Falmouth Art School
After studying at Falmouth and Chelsea Art School I spent several years working as a wildlife illustrator. Although I enjoyed working in a very detailed way after some time I felt that I needed a change of direction and decided to do something totally different. My love of sailing had always been a very

important part of my life even at art school - on Friday afternoons I would race down to my boat for a sail - and so my decision to become a sailing instructor was not a surprise.

I would work in the summer months and travel and paint in the winter. It was during this time that I began to work on larger scale oil paintings.

In the late 90’s I moved to Fowey in Cornwall with my husband and our little girl and it was during this time that I began to paint seriously again and using a different technique and medium. Over the last few years my work has developed and changed into the recognisable style that people know today.

Travels and sketchbooks
In the last couple of years I have combined my love of travel and painting by visiting beautiful locations in Venice, Provence, Greece, The Azores and Scotland. I always take my sketch books and paints with me and enjoy working in different landscapes and have produced small collections from each location.

In the next few years I hope to find new and interesting places to paint both in Cornwall and abroad. Working outside with an instant style, painting is always a constant challenge, ever changing, wonderful and sometimes frustrating but I love it!

Living and working in Cornwall
I am an artist who is very much influenced by the landscape that surrounds me. I need to live and work in Cornwall as it is my greatest inspiration. Whenever I am finding painting difficult or struggling to find inspiration I grab my sketchbook, go for a long walk and find that my ideas come flowing.

My sketchbooks are where my paintings start whether it’s a quick watercolour, a line drawing or even a written note to myself to remind me later of my feelings and thoughts.
