AMY ROSE CLYFAN

Amy Rose Clyfan is a contemporary painter based in York, England.

She graduated from Cardiff School of Art in 2008 with a BA in Fine Art.​

She paints in her attic studio overlooking the river and takes inspiration from aspects of her daily life that excite her. Wild flowers picked from the hedgerow, an antique slipware folk mug from the flea market, freshly-picked pears from her mother’s garden. 

Drawing inspiration from artists including Mary Fedden and Elizabeth Blackadder, Clyfan’s paintings have a sense of folk art tradition, tied to the celebration of the everyday object.
