Welcome! I'm Amanda, and I make illustrations and mixed media, 2-dimensional art.

I create artwork with a sense of whimsy and a connection to the natural world. Growing up in Oklahoma, I have spent time on a family farm, on lots of camping trips, gardening, and fishing. Living only a short distance from the woods or the rivers and lakes in our area we still forage, grow flowers and food, and I try to include homemade inks or handmade materials in some of my works. I have recently begun more works with ink and paper staining and marbling and will be starting in on a series of paper related pieces that tie into my whimsical illustrative style. 

And as always as seen recently on my Instagram, I will also be painting more mermaids and other fantasy characters, and of course sharing all my major oil and acrylic and mixed media paintings and large artworks. 

Want to come with me on this journey? Your support of any amount will give you access to all the Patreon-exclusive and non-exclusive content (check the full list of rewards for details). You get all my thanks and gratitude as well. Other amounts will get you prints and original artworks, or tutorials and advice stuff if you are an artist, and being a patron will get you first dibs on any original artwork, because it will be posted here first and foremost! 

You can view my full bio at my website here, or stay awhile and see what is in store for you! <3

Yay! Thank you for being a part of this! 

All patrons get first dibs on my original paintings as I will post them here first! You will get access to patron-only posts, behind the scenes photos, art-in-progress shots, and content not shared elsewhere or shared here early.  Included:


  • All members get "first dibs" on original artwork - New artwork not going directly to galleries or shows posts here before my online shop, Etsy, et al. so you know what I am creating before others making it easy to reach out if you are interested! 
  • Patron-only posts, never-before-published photos and behind-the-scenes in-process pics. The stuff I don't show people from my studio? Yeah you're gonna see it. :) Public posts release early for patrons, and I make more detailed posts here than on Instagram and other social media. 


I am so grateful you have chosen to support me in this way, and join me on this journey!! <3

Goals
$54 of $200 per month
This is an expense-related goal. Any contribution helps me manage my monthly expenses better which include my travel costs and my medication, phone, and internet expenses. Many of my followers on social media are already aware art sales are a big contributor to paying my medical bills related to my temporal lobe epilepsy. I will continue to work on new and better rewards for you and I am open to suggestions as well! Thank you so much for supporting me!
