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.
