Amy Goodman, A.S.E.A was born in Windsor in 1974 and started drawing and sculpting from a young age. Having ridden all her life, horses have always been a passion and feature frequently in her work. She completed a Fine Art Degree in Southampton in 1997 and has been establishing herself as a Sculptor and Portrait Artist ever since. After a five year spell working in the South West of France, Amy returned to the UK in 2008 to become a resident artist at the inspirational Project Workshops in Hampshire. Amy loves working in different media and has developed her unique style of welded steel, bronze sculpture, and a variety of 2D work, including her distinctive equestrian ink & acrylic wash paintings. Her work is shown internationally and she regularly exhibits with the Society of Equestrian Artists. Amy’s work has also been shown in ‘Country Life’ magazine as well as ‘The Times’ and local press.
Amy has been garnering increasing attention for her sculptural work over the past few years. In 2012, she undertook the Pegasus project of three Flying Horse Sculptures, which leap out into the street at Flying Horse Walk Arcade in Nottingham. Soon afterwards, a bronze portrait of Professor Sid Watkins was commissioned by the British Racing Drivers Club for Silverstone, and was unveiled at an awards ceremony in December. The trend continues into 2013, as Amy completes an eight foot ‘Angel’ in bronze, destined to watch over the entrance to Winchester University’s King Alfred campus and welcome its visitors.
Amy states: “As long as I can remember I have drawn and sculpted animals, particularly horses. The character and movement of the subject matter are very important to me – a few strokes of paint or a few lines of steel can say so much.
