Amanda comes from a family of painters, architects and engineers, “noticers”, who taught her to see the wonder in the world around her.
They were also prolific letter writers, sending the details of their lives to each other through the mail, and then saving those letters, for generations.
Working primarily in watercolor and pen and ink, Amanda has continued that tradition by creating not just a card, but a keepsake; one that is pretty enough to prop on a fireplace mantle or tuck into the corner of a front hall mirror.
Amanda has a background in design and marketing, including participating in a decorator show house, and has spent over a decade working in some of the most iconic historic houses and buildings on the East Coast. These experiences, and a lifetime of “noticing”, inform her paintings and the commissioned work she does for private clients today. Currently she is developing a series of larger works and painting patterns for fabric and textile projects.
