Amy Albright

My approach to teaching is to share all, to demonstrate my unique way of painting in layers and share my love for paint and it’s never ending possibilities. It’s all about the process, experimenting and those happy accidental discoveries. St Ives School of Painting is very special, with stunning inspiration on the doorstep and an aura of creativity in the studios that is contagious.

I paint in a very intuitive way, responding to the unpredictability of using oil paint in a fluid, playful manner. Drawn to areas where land and water meet, I travel, take photos and research but my

imaginary abstract landscapes form only when the act of painting begins; by layering paint glazes, pouring, imprinting and accentuating previous marks.

What our students say

Course was full of exciting new techniques – taught in a relaxed way with plenty of ,materials to work with and on.



Amy is a very effective tutor who gave us students great tips on tools to work with. 


Amy was a credit to the school it makes a big difference to me if I feel that the tutor is committed.
