I'm Amina, a local artist living and working in Gainsborough with my husband, Darrell, my two step-daughters, Mackenzie and Maddison, and our dog, Murphy. I'm originally from Liverpool and studied fashion and textiles at Manchester University before completing my PGCE in Liverpool. I became a qualified art teacher and was the head of art in preparatory schools in Surrey and Nottingham-shire. With 23 years of teaching under my belt I took the brave step of leaving my profession to work full-time as an artist. I hold exhibitions in galleries and run workshops all from my Gainsborough-based studio. I also run holiday workshop for kids which are great fun.
Passionate about Art
I work in acrylic paints and mixed media, and am influenced by people, nature, my environment, my travels, and a variety of other things. However, I do love to paint nature, and really enjoy creating works involving flowers, butterflies, and landscapes. The style of my work includes vibrant colours, and I paint both realistically and abstractly. I love the work of Georgia O'Keeffe, Gustav Klimt, and Michael Kaws. Over the years, I've painted many commissions and always work with the client to achieve what they want. I've also had numerous exhibitions in Nottinghamshire, Surrey, Lincolnshire, and Liverpool.
