Amy Burton-Smith
Teignmouth-based Artist                      

Amy started her painting career by painting pet portraits and even though she now chooses to paint landscapes, she still spends a lot of time working on pet portrait commissions.

Mostly, she chooses to work in oil paints, however will rarely turn down the opportunity to explore new media. In this exhibition, she has extended herself into producing colouring books and even a one of a kind dress made from the printed artwork of fellow artist, Lisa Fletcher.


She works as an artist for Red Herring Games has recently completed artwork (pencil sketches, ink drawings and oil paintings) for their new murder mystery subscription package.

My Name is Lisa Fletcher. I reside in Paignton, Devon, and I have been drawing and painting since I could hold a brush.  It hasn’t been until recent years that I’ve started to sell my work or carry out commissions as opposed to simply enjoying the creative journey and gifting the work away to delighted recipients.

Although I like to dabble in most media, I’m happiest with both oil paints and acrylics. What I love about oils, is the wonderful gloss and richness of colours you get when you mix them together, plus the fact you can layer on top of old layers, meaning there is a greater depth enjoyed. Using acrylics, bring excitement to the mix as you have to blend quickly in order to beat the fast drying nature of the paint!  I also love the vibrancy this media brings, and never tire of it’s brightness.

The theme of the work displayed here, is mostly of a meadow nature, the chosen style is formed by using acrylic on canvas. I like to study skies and enjoy stretching the imagination to enhance a sunset. The brighter the better, and I like a stark contrast between land and sky.      

I am happy to discuss any commission requirements with you.

I hope you enjoy looking at the work, and thank you for your time.
