Amanda Johnstone, creating art that is fashion, luxury, escapism, colour, pleasure and want.
Step into the vibrant universe of Amanda Johnstone, a leading mixed-media artist who fearlessly pushes artistic boundaries.
Amanda creates all things ' bright and shiny ' with her unique ability to meld femininity, fashion, pop art, and contemporary luxury.
Inspired by high-end designers, fashion icons, and the finer things in life, Amanda's art transports you to a realm where glamour and creativity collide. Meticulously crafted, each piece combines her passions for interior design, photography, and contemporary art.
Amanda expertly combines digital imagery with traditional mediums, employing a layering technique that brings her artwork to life.
The journey begins with a giclée print on canvas or archival cotton rag paper, forming the foundation of Amanda's creative process. She applies her artistic touch from there, skillfully overlaying 24k gold leaf, silver leaf, oil sticks, acrylic paints, and charcoal. The result is a multi-dimensional artwork that transcends the boundaries of traditional art forms, leaving viewers captivated by its beauty.
Amanda's creations embody her passions and desires, celebrating and heroing the power of femininity. Each piece reflects her vision, from the graceful allure of feminine nudes to the opulent appeal of luxury fashion.
Amanda shares her inspiration in her own words, stating, "My artworks come from passion. Art, to me, is the soul of the home, the jewellery, essentially the essence of an individual. You can tell a lot about a person from the choices of art they choose to display. To me, my artworks represent who I am. I capture images of my inspirations and layer them into beautiful creations."
With a diverse background and extensive training in fashion and design, including a degree in fashion design and a diploma in makeup artistry focusing on fashion and film, Amanda brings a unique perspective to her art. Her creations evoke a sense of style, luxury, escapism, colour, pleasure, and desire, enveloping viewers in a world of sophistication and allure.

"Fashion and makeup have had a huge influence. I love to focus on faces and beauty editorials and then strip things back. Design incorporating placement and colour helps me choose the way I layer the composition." ~ Amanda Johnstone
