About Amanda Hebden

Amanda Hebden Amanda has been painting both figurative and abstract work since 2008. The theme of her work is identity and hidden lives, the roles we play within our own lives...the ones we hide, and the mask we show to the World. Her figurative work relates to female identity, relationships and in particular the roles of women and the female form and what it represents in today’s image obsessed world. Inspired by her own personal experiences in life, her aim is to portray a sense of vulnerability in my paintings, exposing the struggles, hopes and fears of the subject. I believe that it is when we show our true selves to the world that we are at our most vulnerable and most beautiful. Her use of colour, texture and layering is an attempt to generate an emotional, reminiscent feeling in the viewer, illustrating, what she believes is the great beauty in imperfection and ageing. Her abstract work takes the form of an escape from the ‘shackles’ and expected roles of life…a visual breaking free from what is ‘supposed to be’ and a step into authenticity. Whilst continuing to explore the emotions generated by layering, texture and colour. Her latest work combines both abstract and figurative painting. Born in London, England, Amanda has always had a passion for anything remotely creative. She studied Fine Art at the University College for the Creative Arts in Surrey, for three years, prior to moving to Melbourne in 2008. Since then she have exhibited at many art shows and group exhibitions in Melbourne and on the Mornington Peninsula, sometimes winning prizes.
