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. I enjoying using mixed media like acrylic paint on canvas with small plastic objects to create texture and dimensions.
I am also the Creator and Designer for CreateBeing, a company that focuses on mental health and creative expression. I facilitate workshops that bring creative process and mental health self-care to the forefront.
Welcome to my world!
