Everglades: Soul Gardens

An exhibition by Amanda Louise McPaul.

“Every time I stand in front of an incredibly beautiful landscape, I am moved, deeply, and I have to paint it – I have a longing to share this beauty with others. I want them to see, really see, the beauty of the world around us…


I strive to recreate the magic of the scene before me – all the colours, the light, the reflections…the music of living – such a challenge!


The paintings have to be large as life is large, bold, challenging and exhilarating! Filled with the intense colours of love, pain, growth and loss…


‘Soul Gardens’ is a collection of paintings from my life over the last 10 years – places that I love – places where I am fully alive.”



Amanda has lived and worked as an artist in the Blue Mountains for 20 years. She graduated in 1991 from the University of Technology, Sydney, with a Bachelor of Design, Visual Communication. She has drawn and painted all her life, and has been teaching drawing and painting in Sydney and the Blue Mountains over the past 12 years.
