Industrial landscape

Amanda Hillier - I’m a designer and illustrator based in the Ironbridge Gorge. I’m fascinated by industrial and architectural landscape and enjoy representing my surroundings in a powerful and dynamic way through the exploration of carving and printing lino.

My current work is inspired by iconic structures and includes a piece being exhibited at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) as part of the Print Prize Exhibition.
