Artist Biography

Amy Basnett is an Australian Artist with a passion for connecting abstract and contemporary art with people and incorporating interior design concepts into her overall compositions.

Focusing on colour, technique and design she works intuitively to create works that impart a feeling, emotion or positive reflection in the viewer.

With ten years experience in Environmental Science, managing projects along the Ellen Brook and Burdekin River, Amy has a passion for water quality and the way in which a watercourse flows through a landscape, carving out its own path and interacting along the way with its surroundings.

It is this sense of freedom and expression created through the unique patterns emerging from springs, to creeks, to rivers, to oceans through a landscape that gives direction for bold colour use and fluid movement within her works.

"I love to create a painting which makes such a connection with its viewer, that it becomes part of their life story."
