The primary interest of Amanda’s work is a love of reflection and transparency. Amanda’s work aims to reveal the beauty in natural textures and patterns in the people and nature we encounter daily. The portraits aim to convey a sense of symbolism rather than subjectivity, and aim to represent us as individuals or in relationships with each other or nature, rather than specific people in time. She currently works and exhibits at Betamax Gallery in East Vancouver and The Space Gallery in Yaletown.
