Amanda Shelsher


Amanda Shelsher is a Western Australian artist who creates amazing and mesmerising autobiographical sculptures. Her work is built by hand through a combination of slab and coil techniques so that each finished piece is unique. Amanda assembles and models the features of the bodies when the clay pieces are firm; she then later uses the sgraffito technique to ‘draw’ onto the figure’s bodies like a tattoo.

Amanda's works have been included in many prestigious competitions and exhibitions within Australia and internationally, and are part of collections such as Monash University and Manly Art Gallery + Museum.
