b. Manchester, England. 1980
Lives and works in Bronte, Ontario.
Introvert by Day. Extrovert by night.
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.
My current abstract series focuses on colour and texture, through the use of acrylics, gesso and gel medium. I have an intuitive process with many layers, built over multiple painting sessions. Each piece starts with a colour palette, and the emotion it evokes. Using either soft brush blending techniques or bold mixes with a palette knife, or a combination of both. I do not write about my specific inspiration or what I see in a painting. As the viewer the art becomes yours. It is your interpretation and connection to the piece that matters.
I am a mother, dreamer, dancer, traveller, explorer, humanitarian, environmentalist, workaholic, animal lover, concert junkie, introvert by day, extrovert by night.
