About the artist:
An artist / filmmaker who works mainly with pastel, chalk, charcoal and pencil, Amanda Holiday has a keen interest in the collision of narrative and line – of drawing and story. She studied at Wimbledon School of Art and has exhibited at INIVA, ArtLounge, Bargehouse, Lewisham Library and the Southbank.

Born in Sierra Leone, artist Amanda Holiday came to the UK at the age of 5. After completing a degree in Fine Art at Wimbledon School of Art, her work was exhibited in landmark black art shows across the UK.

Holiday moved into film and scriptwriting – directing a number of short experimental films for the Arts Council, BFI and Channel 4. Between 2001 and 2010 she lived in Cape Town and wrote and directed several educational TV series.

After a long break, she resumed drawing in 2008 - new works for the ‘Hum of History’ series. Since returning to live in the UK in 2010, her work has been shown at INIVA, cueB gallery (solo), ArtLounge, Bargehouse, Southbank, Fairfields Arts Centre, Lewisham Library and Harts Lane Studios.
