The local environment and ecosystems of the southeast are fascinating and surprising to a city girl, which fuels most of the research into biological forms. The works aesthetic formula is derived mostly from biomorphic abstraction. Amanda's artwork primarily is in drawing/painting, sculpture, and installation.
