House Crazy Sarah can’t show you a whole lot of Amanda White’s stuff because images of her art are copyrighted, but she will show you just a couple to give you a taste of Amanda’s style in the hopes that you may become a fan too!

Aren’t they divine?
Amanda calls her unique method of art-making The Fine Art of Paper Recycling. Here she is in her studio, hard at work.
According to her website, Amanda conceived her artistic medium when she came upon a pile of her daughters’ discarded fashion magazines and started some experimental snipping. Her creative urges turned into greeting cards and prints and were soon discovered by curators of a London house museum. It snowballed from there and Amanda is now known for her gorgeous, colorful geometric prints which are almost quilt-like.
Night and Day (Monk’s House, the home of Virginia Woolf)

PS…… You may have noticed that House Crazy Sarah has added a new category to her blog – Creative Souls – to feature artists who are her cuppa tea: artists who celebrate all things old and funky (and literary)!
