Artist Statement and Bio

Amanda is a self-taught artist who began seriously working with oil paint in December 2019.

She loves natural landscapes as a place for calm and rejuvenation, so it is no surprise that these are her favorite subjects. She imbues each landscape, nocturne, and flower painting with her love for the natural space, using a variety of strokes, blending, glazing, and palette knife work to compose scenes that capture the essence of the real space, reimagined through her own lens.

Her experience with landscape photography for two decades informs her understanding of composition and design, and she loves the freedom in painting that allows her to choose which elements to include and which to leave out in order to simplify a scene. Her paintings are representational and impressionistic with sprinkles of realism.

From Amanda: "My artwork pulls out beauty from the mundane, elevating common scenes to imaginative and beautiful reveries. Always representational and expressive with hints of impressionism, I play with design, composition, and colors in order to capture the feeling I had when viewing any given scene or subject."
