She has received several awards for her work, including Scholarships and Art Faculty Awards. Alcock-White’s paintings have been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions.

Amelia’s paintings express the human condition and its relation to nature, the transitory character of time and the contrasting endurance of elemental forces.

Amelia fuses sentiment, intimacy and warmth with the enigmatic, giving her images an emotional subtlety that draws the viewer into her private world.
