About the Artist
Amanda Gmür draws from nature and the wonders of her surroundings. The landscape of the childhood in South Africa and now the Zurich lake and Swiss Alps are a constant source of inspiration. Her recent work reflects this in an abstract approach to landscape, capturing vast sweeping land and waterscapes and nature in textured oil paintings on canvas.
Amanda was born in South Africa and studied fine art at the University of Natal. After completing her Bachelor of Arts degree, she moved to Johannesburg to work in interior design. She then travelled and lived in London and New York before settling in Switzerland.
Original art pieces open a relationship between the viewer and the artist, it creates something unique that can excite, heal, relax and inspire something new.
That’s what I feel about how art works, how it affects me, and I hope you can have that journey with me through my paintings.
