A Sunshine Coast local, surfer and mother of 3 girls. Amanda is a self-taught artist who picked up the paint brush after her first daughter was born. Her work is fun, colourful and a pure reflection of her love for the ocean. Amanda uses a combination of acrylic paint, spray-paint, old surf magazines, paint pens, ink and resin.
“The subject of my work comes very naturally to me. I am constantly inspired and amazed by the oceans power and the natural grace of women surfers. Sustainable living and the oceans vulnerability is always on the forefront of my mind. In the hope to get people thinking about and reducing their environmental footprint, I use articles from old surf magazines that relay a message of conservation”.
Amanda is new to the art-world, with 2016 being her first year to display her work publicly.
