Our regular readers will be familiar with this week’s artist, Amy McCartney. Her beautiful and imaginative works have accompanied many works of our talented authors.

Amy is a BA (Hons) Fine Art student at Newcastle University, in her last year. She works predominantly in painting. Last year she completed a semester at the Kunstakademie in Münster, Germany. She exhibited work in the academy’s ‘Rundgang’ in January 2019 whilst there. She has also exhibited in ‘MASH’, a group exhibition at Hoochie Coochie in May 2018, as well as in her course’s first year exhibition ‘Saga’ at the Tyneside Cinema film school, in May 2017, and multiple in-departmental course exhibitions.  Last year she collaborated on illustrations for the Bridges 2019 anthology, published by Bandit Fiction  earlier this year. She enjoys drawing and illustrating, an interest which was stimulated during the Visual Communication strand of her Art and Design Foundation Diploma, and has since produced some Illustrative commissions, as well as a book cover design.


As always, you can use this stunning visual work as a launch pad for your own writing or other creative work. Today’s prompt: Reflection.
