Virtual Art Space - 2020!

Welcome to My Studio

If this is your first time here my name is Amanda and I am a mixed media artist. It has been a while since I posted on this blog and thought it was about time I fixed that.  This space is supposed to be about my art and creativity and sharing it with the world.

We are living in very different times at the moment from what we are used to and having to adapt and create a sense of normality in the midst of intense uncertainty.

If you choose to show up to this blog you will get to see daily images of the things that I create.  I love to make things, from art to craft and everything in between.  I will share more of the technique on my other blog HERE

So while we cannot gather in public in the spaces that we use to such as the art galleries, museums and cafes we can meet online and still be inspired, encouraged.  We can share those things that made us think, grow, reflect and made us smile.  We will be able to better handle the changes that are happening in the world and have deeper insights into a way forward.

I will be sharing the length and breath of my work so you will see paintings, sculptures, textiles, crafts, metal work, recycled, art journals and more - a visual feast for the eyes!

Hacking the Color Wheel 2017

A course you cannot afford to miss!!!

I am really excited to share that  will be teaching in Hacking The Color Wheel, which is hosted by Kiala Givehand! It is split into 2 sessions and I will be teaching in Session 2

When you think about being a "creative rebel" what do you think about? I will be teaching and showing you different ways in which you can work with color, not feel restrictive and have fun.

We will look at how to use colors in a variety of ways including color wheels, mono-color studies, mixing color, different combinations of color and also think about how we use color to create mood and feeling, tell a story, and express ourselves. 
Join the creative rebels as we journey together through lessons on bookbinding, color theory, techniques, mixed media spreads, and projects that will push the boundaries of color, art, and journaling.
You can sign up for the sessions now and take advantage of the Early Bird pricing for the Session 1 and 2 BUNDLE here. Session 1 starts June 11th and Early bird pricing ends May 15th. Come join us! You can find all the details here.
I hope you will join me and the other amazing artists for all book making, art journaling, and color fun.

BADASS Art Journal 2017

I shared some prompts for you to try previously on my blog,  don't worry you can still check them out HERE! - sign up link for BADASS Art Journal Course

This is my second year as a teacher on the BADASS Art Journal course and I am blessed to be working with another talented group of artists.  Grow with us as you take this course.  I believe that there is always room for growth, and there is never a cut off point, it is a lifelong thing.  I love working with colour and texture, and allowing the stories come out from the page.  Texture allows you to create some interesting effects

In my lesson I will be sharing with you techniques that allow you to play and use surfaces that you wouldn't normally use in your art journal in very different ways! - sign up for One BADASS Art Journal Course
