Mixed Media Art
Amanda Upton

When I’m not in my art room, you’ll find me out walking the hills and coastlines of Orkney, soaking in the amazing colours and the light in the wonderful landscapes. It provides an endless source of inspiration!

My mixed media art combines my love of watercolour and hand-stitching.

The Straumr collection (meaning tide stream in Norse) is a series of limited edition pieces, created by adding hand-stitching to watercolour. Each is unique, capturing the flow of the seas around Orkney.

For my teabag collection, a teabag is used as my canvas, to which watercolour and hand-stitching are added.

Original artwork, cards and coasters are available to buy – a little piece of Orkney for you to take home!
