Amanda designs commercial art by day as a graphic designer. By night she can be found in her studio painting. A formal education and foundation in art and design allow her to apply these fundamentals in her work. Amanda’s initial love of art growing up, be it painting, illustration or photography, lead her to a career in graphic design, primarily designing consumer packaging. After designing for marketing purposes for many years she found her passion again, coming full circle to what made her chose a creative path in the first place.
Putting brush to canvas is Amanda's true artistic passion and outlet - forever a lover of the creative process. Her motivation in making art is completely self-indulgent.
