Biography

Hello! My name is 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 eight years of intensive art training and earning a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts/ Crafts and minor in Graphic Design (2016 Kent State University). I’ve taken on multiple responsibilities managing an art studio / local business in Twinsburg, OH. My roles included conceptualizing classes, visual marketing communications, sales and networking with clients, and directing events. The experience I gained have influenced my skills in teaching art, public speaking, and building client relationships.

2020 Update: There have been many shifts happening this year which have directly affected my life as an artist. Due to the Co-vid 19 stay at home order, I took a pause on vending at art shows and began focusing on contract art work and commissions full -time. I’m choosing to do the best I can in seeing each diverse situation as a chance to grow in a new light and perspective. Prior to the nation wide stay at home order, I packed my art supplies and moved closer to the city of Cleveland in Lakewood, Ohio. I used this time period to set up an at home art studio with paints, crystals, crafts, and more holistic art practices. My focus has been on growing online sales, consulting clients with personalized crystal healing, and painting more public art murals (yay!).

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 and spiritual community by participating in art shows, festivals, healing sessions and local events in Northeast, Ohio such as Sound Healing at PopLifeCLE 2020 , Ingenuity Art Fest 2019, Avant-Garde Art Shows 2019, 78th Street Art Studios 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!
