About Amanda

HELLO!

My name is Amanda,

I am a Creator.

There are two main passions in my life: creativity and self development. I enjoy the process of self understanding and finding joy in my artistic practices. 

My personal artistic practice includes illustrating interior design architecture from urban environments. I enjoying using mixed media like acrylic paint on canvas with small plastic objects to create texture and dimensions. My main styles include modern contemporary and pop art.

I am also the Creator and Designer for CreateBeing, a company that focuses on mental health and creative expression.  I co-facilitate workshops that bring creative process and mental health self-care to the forefront. #endthestigma

Welcome to my world!
