Amanda Upton’s visual world is equal parts whimsical and mysterious. Her characters occupy richly detailed scenes, sometimes fantastical, sometimes familiar. In ‘The Guitar Maker’, she pictures a man playing his guitar on the front porch. The spirit of his song, personified as a translucent woman with wings, sings along.

Upton is an acclaimed artist and illustrator. Her work was included in Luerzers Archive Magazine collection of the world’s best illustrators and she was a Walkley Award finalist in 2000. She began her career as a cadet illustrator for the Courier Mail, then Sydney Morning Herald.

Reminiscent of magic realism, Upton’s vision finds the magic in everyday life. Her vision is imaginative, bewitching and female-first. For collectors of contemporary prints and works on paper, listen to ‘The Guitar Maker’.
