Amanda Riley (London, United Kingdom)
Amanda Riley grew up in a mind-numbingly boring small town in middle England. As a child she was incredibly curious, how things work, what’s inside, underneath, between, what can you see if you look in here, or down here. What will happen if you do this or that, pull this apart, how does it work and why? Construction, destruction and secret worlds not immediately obvious to the human eye. What’s going on in the places we cannot see? Things made by God and things made by man. Amanda was selected to show her Contemporary Botanical Art (Full Frontal Florals) at Chelsea Flower Show 2008 & 2009. She usually works to private commission.
