Amy Hooton

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

"Scottish watercolour, gouache and ink artist"
Amy Hooton, Scottish artist born Edinburgh 1980. Studied MA Fine Art (Hons) at Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art finishing in 2003. During a travelling trip to Asia, painting became my obsession. Highly inspired by Chinese abstract ink landscapes, and combining this fascination with previous experience of working with a Batik artist in Yogjakarta, Indonesia. I undertook a residency at the Vermont Studio Center, USA, where I developed the beginnings of my style you see today. I specialize in drawing and painting using water based mediums, my art is inspired by nature and the creative process. My favourite artists include Kandinski and Klimt.
Wescover creator since 2020
