Zalacards is Amanda Bates, a fine artist based in north Hampshire, England.
I work in oils, acrylics, inks and whatever else happens to be to hand. I love being outdoors and I love painting landscapes, but I will paint very nearly anything! I try to avoid cliche and I try to put my own spin on things. As an incurable (if slightly cynical) optimist, I always look for beauty in a subject.
I'm delighted to be involved in the WeAllSendCards project, not least because it alows me to supplement my usual fare with images that draw upon a lighter-hearted vein or that were made in non-lightfast media.
All of my images are made exclusively by me.
