Unison Colour welcomes Amy Shuckburgh as an Associate Artist

Amy Shuckburgh is a British artist of Cornish heritage, born and raised in London. She uses soft pastels with an expressive energy, employing instinctive mark-making, pattern and abstraction.

Amy trained at L’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, the St Ives School in Cornwall, The Slade Summer School, and the Royal Drawing School in London. She has a First Class degree in English Literature and an MA in Curating. She won the Heatherley’s Drawing Award 2019.

Amy’s work encompasses her experience of motherhood, with emotive domestic scenes of mothers with children, as well as her connection to place and her sense of belonging, whether in London cityscapes, returning to her Cornish roots, or drawing en plein air on the Isle of Man, where she is currently living with her young family.

Going Green

I spend a lot of time thinking about how greens are seen, or not seen, how they can be captured and are so impossibly hard to capture.
