|"Newlyn School of Art offers some of the best short courses in the UK; taught by some of the most exciting artists working in Cornwall".|
Amanda Hoskin is a familiar name on the Cornish art scene having been living, working and exhibiting in Cornwall for over fifteen years. She has gained a considerable following for her subtle depictions of many different parts of Cornwall's varied coastal landscape.
"I am an artist who is very much influenced by the landscape that surrounds me. I need to live and work in Cornwall as it is my greatest inspiration. Whenever I am finding painting difficult or struggling to find inspiration I grab my sketchbook, go for a long walk and find that my ideas come flowing.
My sketchbooks are where my paintings start whether it’s a quick watercolour, a line drawing or even a written note to myself to remind me later of my feelings and thoughts".
