Hello, my name is Amanda Williams,
I am a South Australian Artist with a Disability that came about after sustaining serious head injuries back in 2001. I was on the receiving end of a full force kick from my own horse during morning feed time that has left me with an ABI (acquired brain injury) plus blindness in the right eye.Toward the end of a long two year rehabilitation process, my husband and carer suggested going to art classes as part of my therapy. I must admit that having always been interested in art I had never persued it before. After joining a lovely art group in the southern area and settling in over a few months, I seemed to have a talent that can only be said was given to me as a 'Gift from God' along with my second chance at life!
Over the last several years my works have been shown successfully in both Disabled and Open categories in many art exhibitions. My chosen medium is Oil but I also enjoy a dabble in Acrylic and Watercolour, I have a varied amount of subjects I like to paint including my more recent love of modern art pieces that have been in high demand.
I have been given a Gift from God and my wish is to share my 'unique and original' style of art with others.
Hope you enjoy them !!
