“I paint in a very intuitive way, responding to the unpredictability of using oil paint in a fluid, playful manner. I am drawn to areas where land and water meet, I travel, take photos and research but my imaginary abstract landscapes form only when the act of painting begins; by layering paint glazes, pouring, imprinting and accentuating previous marks.” Amy Albright.
