Amelia D H Tovey
I make paintings, animations and ceramics.
My practice aims to document poignant moments, curating memories and nostalgic visions to enable the space for joy and appreciation, quietness and gentleness. I'm currently based in Newcastle, UK.
I graduated from BA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins in June 2020, where I was nominated for a Maison/0 award and two pieces from my graduate collection were acquired by UAL's permanent art collection. View our class of 2020 graduate showcase here.
Throughout August 2020, my painting 'A Watery End' was featured on a billboard in Camden by Tate Collective.
I've illustrated two books: the first, 'Growing So Well & Other Poems' written by Sunita Edirisooriya and self-published in August 2020. The second is children's book The Grumpy Lion written by Gillian Vessey and self-published in December 2020.
I am currently completing an MA in Character Animation at CSM, where my recent work includes directing an animated documentary sting for London International Animation Festival (screening November 2021 at the Barbican Centre). Most recently, I animated an advert for UK charity, The Children's society.
