About Amy Salisbury

Amy’s work represents more than just a beautiful image, her interest lies in capturing the natural environment focusing on the underwater world and more recently the solar system. Revealing the force, power and harmony in nature, her work seeks to rouse the emotions and connect us with the beauty found in nature and envelope the viewer in energy and colour of landscapes, seascapes, skies and cityscapes.


Amy creates large format images in sizes up to 6' x 4' which opens up a wide space for her audience to escape to and reflect upon, explore and transpose themselves.

The potential intensity of colour, luminosity and vibrancy particularly found in Wales makes it a joy and great challenge to work here and I am currently focusing my work on the patterns in nature - specifically trees, birds, and fish. I am also developing a range of oil paintings based on the Lost Chambers aquariums in Dubai and 3D decorative art based on patterns – range available soon.
