I love these rock paintings.Go to http://amandamakepeace.com to see all of Amanda's art.
These paintings express my love of nature and stones inparticular. I've always been amazed at the variation of color and shapes in pebbles and stones. Several of my Pebble Paintings can be purchased as prints. Be sure to check them out at Imagekind.
I like to take things from nature that we ignore, take for granted or trod upon without a second glance as my subjects. This most often happens to be stones, rocks and pebbles. They come in more colors than just grey and brown - we need only look a little closer. Beauty can be found in the simplest things.
Amanda is a self-taught, eclectic artist who tried a bit of art school and decided it was not for her. She wanted to do her own thing! She was born in Maryland, USA and later lived in Georgia and the South West Coast of England.
As a child she loved watching her Mother duplicate on paper her favorite toys and objects around the house. By the time Amanda was 8 she was an avid drawer and Nature was her Muse. Amanda has explored many subjects and techniques over the years but has now returned to her roots with Nature and wildlife as her subjects.
Amanda is a published artist and active member of EBSQ - Self Representing Artists. She is currently working on several projects; including Pen and Ink drawings of frogs and a new series of Earthscape paintings. In March 2007 Amanda returned to the USA and now lives in Athens, Georgia with her husband, daughter and 2 cats.
