From the wandering mind of Amanda...

Cat guard with helmet and spear.

When I was young my father used to bring home discarded radios and televisions to fix. Most of the time he was able to fix them and we had more televisions in our house than anyone else I knew. When he couldn’t fix something he would give it to me or my brother to take apart and fool around with. I feel like this really opened up our minds to the way things work and sometimes I would take parts and use them for other things. My father loved photography and my mother loved music and reading. This was an amazing background for creativity and imagination.

So who am I? I am an artist, designer, builder, painter and nerd. I love taking things apart and putting things together and I try to exercise my talents in some way or form every day. I'm a fan of fantasy, sci-fi, video games and animation. I'm also a fan of Steampunk which is a blend of futuristic sci-fi with a Victorian esthetic. You will see how I've translated my love of these things into custom dolls, sneakers, chess boards and other items.

On a professional level I have a degree in Graphic Design from the School of Visual Arts and for the last 15 years I have primarily been working with my associate creating websites. I am now looking to focus my talents more on illustration, digital art and customs.
