Meet Amanda West

Hello, and welcome to my world of colour and texture!

I live on the South West coast of Devon in the UK with my partner, two little cats (Minxy and Treacle), and two daughters, all of whom I adore dearly! I confess that I am a huge tea addict, and supply myself with endless cups of tea on a daily basis.

It was during my final year in BA (Hons) Illustration in 2018, that I started to develop the designs that are now featured in my homeware collection and fashion accessories. One of the strongest influences and a theme which flows through all of my designs is my Singaporean heritage. My mum is from Singapore and having been on numerous trips to visit family, and growing up with her Oriental influence, this has had a clear impact on my designs today.

My colourful designs are inspired by the exquisite hues of Oriental art and silk garments, combined with the harmonious aesthetics of florals and fauna. The design process I use is often mixed media, using various mark making and collage to give texture to my elements. Besides using collage, I also enjoy the depth that painted motifs can add to my designs; and by digitally merging all of these elements together my final pieces are formed. Texture plays a huge part in my design process, which is evident in the fine detail produced on every design. These images combined with the most luxurious and tactile fabrics, make these products truly irresistible.

 Amanda West products appeal to those who recognise the elegance and uniqueness of an exclusive design, along with the importance of high-quality craftsmanship.
