Amanda Penrose Hart

Travelling informs the work of respected Australian contemporary painter Amanda Penrose Hart. Her style illuminates the pleasures of painting and what the inert material itself is capable of, absorbing the experience of painting in-situ in the landscape.


Born in Brisbane in 1963 she holds a Diploma of Fine Art from Queensland College of Art and a Bachelor of Visual Art from Griffith University.

Penrose Hart has held twenty solo exhibitions and has shown in many more group exhibitions. She regularly has work selected in prizes such as the Portia Geach Memorial Award (2011, 2008, 2007, 2006) and the En Plein Air Art Prize.

Her work is represented in public and private collections including Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney; Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, NSW; Brisbane Polo Club; Gold Coast City Art Gallery; Hawkesbury Regional Art Gallery, NSW; Redcliff Regional Gallery, Qld; Taronga Park Zoo, Sydney; and University of Sydney Art Collection.
