Amy works primarily in oils on canvas and covers a diverse range of subjects spanning from botanical to landscape, architecture to animals, figurative to industrial machinery and pretty much anything in between. Influenced by film and television, magazines and everyday life, her work is fairly representational, although at times, a more dramatic feel comes into play with shadows and light. A former 1st place winner of the Bradford Open, Amy has proved a popular presence at the Bradford Industrial Museum.
'Whilst I cover most subject matter I have a particular fondness for industrial and machine images, partly due to my family history.. Caledonia Pattern Works was established in 1860 in Bradford by my Great Great Grandfather Joseph Horrocks, and was succeeded by a further three generations; Great Grandfather, Grandfather and Uncle. Maybe machines are in the blood. Other reasons lie in their structure, the straight lines, crisp curves and colour pallet. There is definition and solidity to them which I greatly admire and appreciate and which works well with my style of painting.'
