Hello and welcome to my gallery! My name is Amanda. I am a self taught artist. I've been painting and sketching since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I have only ever taken one art class in my life. I have a serious passion for wildlife, so most of the art featured will be animals. For me art is being able to create your own world. I personally love being able to paint my own place. I find when I’m painting I become one with my art. It’s as if I am actually in the environment of whatever animal I may be painting, or standing in the world that I am creating. My hope is that my art can bring a little joy and peace to you and your home.
