Get to know Amanda...

Birthday? October 1st and I like to consider myself one of the Autumn People.
 
When did you start doing artwork? I can't remember a time when I didn't paint, draw, sculpt, or create. So I guess it started as a child and has never stopped.
 
When and what and where did you first get published? Although I'm a graphic artist and have had my art used in print ads over the years, my collage art was first officially published by ACME Comics in 2014 in their ongoing graphic novel anthology, Crimson Dreams. It was a steampunk influenced collage that was used as back cover art.
 
Do you use reoccurring themes or images in your illustrations? Yes. My own dream imagery influences me, along with Victorian and retro science fiction art. Thematically, I am drawn to the idea of peeling back the outer layer of consciousness to reveal the different truths underneath.

What media do you like to work in? Why? I mainly work as a collage artist which I create old-school-style. I still cut paper, paint with acrylic and watercolor, along with using pencil or whatever is at hand to enhance the images. The three dimensional aspects of the layered paper adds depth and texture to the finished piece. 

What artist's work do you most admire? How has this artist's work influenced you? The art of Salvidor Dali was my first exposure to surrealist art when I was a kid. Dali's approach of combining disparate elements to create new meaning and dreamlike imagery had a profound influence on me then that continues in all my art today.
