West Darling Arts

Amanda Johnson is a self taught artist and 4th generation Broken Hill resident.
After 5 years as pay mistress at the South Mine, Amanda operated a ceramic teaching studio. Folk art was a natural progression from ceramics, but acrylic art is her first love.
Her art practice has now evolved to an individual style capturing the environment she lives in. Amanda loves her hometown of Broken Hill and it is often depicted in her work.
Amanda's atelier is Willy Nilly Art in Broken Hill's main street. There she has a gallery and retail space as well as her on-site studio. Everyone is welcome to browse, buy or just stop by for a chat with the artist. All works displayed in Willy Nilly Art have been painted by Amanda or her daughter Lauren. Lauren also makes original jewellery under the name, Daise & Vi.
A working artist, Amanda can often be found painting in the studio at the back of the Willy Nilly Art gallery. So you may have the artist herself on hand to explain her art and processes! Works can be commissioned, and can be posted anywhere. Please contact them by phone or email, check them out on Facebook or come visit in person to find out more.
