About

Hello, my name is Amanda Williams,
I am a South Australian Artist with a Disability that came about after sustaining serious head injuries back in 2001 due to a paddock accident with a horse. I am now the recipient of an ABI (acquired brain injury) plus blindness in the right eye.
Toward the end of a long two year rehabilitation process, my husband and carer suggested going to art classes as part of my therapy. I must admit that having always been interested in art I had never pursued it before. After joining a lovely art group in the southern area and settling in over a few months, I seemed to have a talent that can only be explained as given to me in the form of my ‘Gift from God' along with a second chance at life!
During the last several years my works have been shown successfully in both Disabled and Open categories in many art exhibitions. My chosen medium is Oil but I also enjoy a dabble in Acrylic and Watercolor, I have a varied amount of subjects I like to paint including my more recent love of modern art pieces that have been in high demand.

"I have been given a 'Gift from God' and my wish is to share it with you."

Influences

Always inspired by my current mentors Patricia M Houston of Adelaide's Fleurieu Peninsular and Claude Ciccone, based in Victoria.
These two artists have not only taught me many things in the art of oil painting but have totally inspired me to challenge myself to become the best Artist I could be.
