Artist in Residence – Amanda Duke

Amanda studied Fine Art BA (Hons) at Goldsmiths College. She has been teaching Art for many years in local secondary schools and is now managing her part time teaching with making her own work.

Amanda works instinctively and in response to her surroundings. She usually works with paper, cotton and silk fabrics, natural dyes and stitch, print based media and collage. Inspired by the collages of Kurt Schwitters, the Spirit Cloths of Jude Hill and embroideries of Junko Oki, this gives clues about Amanda’s interest in abstract experimentation and her delight in mapping the visual elements.

Capturing the very essence of the plants, the impressions left through the changing seasons, the warmth and light of the summer sun, and the fleeting moments caught through stitch print and collage in an attempt to re-create a sense of the prairie.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
