Cuando Carmen Amaya tuvo un sueño de Morón de la Frontera, 2017, cut-outs on watercolours

I am a visual artist. I paint, I draw, I wield my scissors and needles and I make objects.


Trained in my hometown Amsterdam, Holland, at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, I am based in England, Oxford and Coventry since 2004.


In my work I create a habitat that has a fairytale atmosphere, populated by weird and wonderful composites of ceramics and textiles, and collages of cuttings from my life on watercolours.


My studio is at Holyhead Studios, a non for profit organisation for the arts in Coventry, of which I am one of three director and where I teach life drawing and participate in outreach projects.


I have extensive experience in teaching (Coventry University, Adult Education, Pilgrims Teacher Training) and a teaching qualification in Higher Education.
