Amanda MacPhail


Drawing is at the heart of what Amanda does and although her 'canvas' is now bone china it is the image that excites her and the shapes she is working with.

Amanda trained in Graphics and Illustration at Bath Academy of Art and Cambridge School of Art, becoming for many years a freelance illustrator. She worked mainly for publishers in London, for magazines and books and in Cambridge, where a lot of her work was commissioned by Cambridge University Press.

dancersAmanda taught Graphics and Illustration on the Foundation Art Course for 18 years, firstly at the 'tech' and then when it was transferred to Cambridge Regional College. On leaving teaching she set up Createaplate where she is producing illustrations on bone china by using onglaze paper enamel. She sells directly from her studio, Cambridge Open Studios,  as well as other UK galleries. Amanda accepts commissions for special occasions as each piece can be made to be totally unique and personal.

Amanda also runs classes from her home.  This she finds the most fun.  Seeing people who think they cannot draw a line produce the most amazing work.

Each year Amanda takes part in Cambridge Open Studios during July and has Christmas Open Weekends at her house and studio, in Cottenham, near Cambridge. For more information please visit her website Createaplate.
