Amanda trained at Winchester School of Art, taking her MA in Fine Art and Sculpture at Chelsea College of Art, London. Living in Cornwall since the mid-1990s, she has taken an active part in many community exhibitions and events, showing her wonderful creativity and expertise in projects like the Monday and Saturday Art Clubs that were run at NAG for some years for school-age children. Her work has been shown at the Rainyday Gallery in Penzance.

She has also been a leader every year with the design and making of spectacular large puppets and floats, banners and filming of fairs and Golowan Festival events. From 2000-3 she was part of the Penzance Artist-Led Projects team with Tessa GARLAND, Susan BLEAKLEY, Gillian COOPER and others.

Currently her work is focused on video, sound, installation and living art, and as a consequence of a commission in 2009, she participated in the exhibition 'Gloria', mounted in London locations for seven visual artists by the Sustain Studios.
