London Amara, (b. 1977) is an American born sculptor, painter, photographer and writer. Amara is the daughter of a second generation builder and a formal art educator. She was raised in the remote forests of Ohio and credits her indigenous environment as the primary influence in her work today. Amara was immersed in the natural world as a child and refers to the woodlands as her “First Language.” Her work often employs raw industrial materials, elements of language and techniques that rely on alchemizing precision with the unknown and imperfection. Amara was awarded scholarship and classically trained as a fine artist at Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio. Her work has been exhibited at the Columbus Conservatory, Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center and the Tampa Museum of Art. Amara has been a guest lecturer at the University of South Florida, Florida Gulf Coast University and currently hosts monthly artist talks at her studio. Additionally, Amara’s work was the subject of a 2012 film by Rising Sky Studios and she was the recipient of the 2013 Vincent LeCavalier commemorative commission. She recently embarked on a two year project, documenting the land she was raised on and is creating a book, set to be published in 2020. Amara works as a full time, professional artist in Bonita Springs, Florida and Columbus, Ohio.
