Art & Collage | Amanda Hawkins | Ahhh Design

I enjoy dirty, grimy, minimal and abstract work.
I love hiding things in the background and building up layers of texture with bursts of bright color.
I love making a mess on paper and then scrapping it away.

A few years ago, after finishing my Bachelors of Fine Art degree, I began working smaller – with scraps of paper and stamps – finding new ways to create texture with layers and layers and layers. I added in text too, I had a teacher in college say that wasn’t the best idea – she was my favorite and a lovely woman but she was wrong.

You’ll find a lot of my collage work on amandahawkins.me, or on flickr

Here’s a small sample:
