We are so excited to release Amelia Fulton, as the first artist creating work for our affordable contemporary art range, here at The Arthouse Collective. Amelia’s style of work is pointillism which is essentially hand-drawing pixels to create a realistic image. She generally works in black and white but has started to experiment with colour as well. Amelia usually draws natural flora or fauna but is also fascinated by the human body.
Amelia’s sister, Claire, is a visual artist so she grew up drawing all the time. She studied art in high school and duxed the grade for a number of years as well as being nominated Art Captain. Amelia went on to study Interior Design at QUT but decided to drop out as she hated having to work on computers. Ever since she graduated high school, Amelia has been drawing regularly, exhibiting and selling her works. Her ultimate goal, the way she hopes her story ends, is to open a gallery to support up-coming artists and disadvantaged artists.
The Arthouse Collective x Amelia Fulton:
Here are The Collective, we are always looking out from emerging artists who have developed their own style and continued to progress with their creative talents although it can be tough as an emerging artist. Amelia is right at the beginning of what we can see as an exciting career as an artist and we are so happy to welcome her to our team. Her dot works are intricate and detailed and can be styled beautifully into the rustic, contemporary style interior design we love here at The Arthouse Collective. Amelia will be producing one exclusive, limited edition artwork to begin with however we are looking forward to a larger series of her beautiful pointillism works in the future.
