Hello! My names Amanda and it’s great to connect with you. As a local Northeast, Ohio artist, my goal is to strengthen the community, businesses, and individuals through art and design. The passion I have for creating inspires me to help brighten the lives of others.
My practice continues to grow after five years of intensive art training at Kent State University earning a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts/ Crafts and minor in Graphic Design (2016). After graduation, I took on multiple responsibilities managing an art studio / local business in Twinsburg. My roles included conceptualizing classes, visual marketing communications, sales and networking with clients, and directing events. The experience I gained have influenced my skills to grow more positively.
In 2019, I created an e-commerce website to sell products focused on my two main passions in life, art and holistic health. The goals of ArtSoulShop.com is to help people feel more peace and empowerment. Whether my clients are feeling anxious, lost, or alone, the products I create promote meaningful intentions that add purpose to one’s life.
I am an active member in the creative community by participating in art shows, festivals, and local events in Northeast, Ohio such as Avant-Garde Art Shows 2019, Downtown Willoughby Live Murals 2019, Flow Night at the Odeon 2019, Hessler Street Fair 2018, Big Love Festival 2017, Kent State Student Annual 2016, Boston Mills Juried Art Show 2016, Blossom Summer Art 2015.
Each piece of art and design I make has a story behind it. My works include multiple mediums such as Graphic Design, Drawing, Painting, Jewelry, Textiles and Fibers, Ceramics and Mixed Media.
My mantra is: Create the energy you want to attract!
