About the Artists:


Born and raised in Corrales, NM, Amanda left for college in California  in 2001. After earning her BFA in Arts and Entertainment, Amanda went on to Freelance  Illustration, and Storyboarding in the Animation Industry.  After several years of school and work in Southern California she returned to New Mexico to pursue her oil painting talents.  

She  bases all of her paintings on narrative themes and character story.  These elements are then used to combine animal and human anatomy for each character.

Amanda currently resides in Albuquerque, NM with her boyfriend Miguel and her two rescued dogs Sophie, a cattle dog, and George a Pit Bull.
