Hi I'm Amanda! Welcome to my site!
I am a work from home artist who mainly paints fan art and pets. I use mainly acrylic paints, sometimes dabbling in oils. I began painting when I was in about 5th grade. I had a very creative teacher who sparked a creative passion in me and I have been painting ever since.
I took as many art classes as I could in high school and went on to study media arts and animation. I did not complete my animation degree because the more I studied it the more I realized that digital art was not for me. I missed the hands on messiness of traditional painting. So I left college to pursue other art dreams.
For about 5 years I worked as a paint and sip party host. I would host art parties at different restaurants and venues and lead people through beginner paintings while they all drank and had a great time. I just recently was able to step away from that and I am now pursuing my dream of being a self employed, work from home artist. Huzzah!
I have an amazing husband who treats me like a queen, a corgi named Olimar, and a cat named Midna. We are huge Nintendo fans and all around geeks. I like to paint the things that make me happy, which means a lot of fan art and corgis!
We recently launched a new web comic together and are so excited to see where these art adventures take us.
I live stream all of my paintings and most of our web comic process on Twitch where you can watch me paint and chat with me. I love to get to know new people so come say hi! I post speed paint videos of my work up on YouTube as well. I sell prints of my artwork online and at conventions and I also take commissions for custom paintings.
If you'd like the latest updates and announcements I always post them on my Discord and Twitter first. Please do not hesitate to ask questions or say hi!
