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.

Amy was a brilliant tutor; enthusiastic, playful, generous and above all encouraging. She gave us lots of helpful information and then set us ways of putting them into practice.


I learnt lots of new techniques whilst having the freedom to experiment in my own style.
