Amanda Atkins is a young artist and writer just beginning her career. She's interested in creating all kinds of books, showing work, and making, making, making. Her current work is mostly made up of 'portraiture' of women created from her imagination. With titles heavily inspired by her background in literature, these pieces are holding secret narratives. Amanda's loves include all animals, poetry, typewriters, evergreens, firefly shows, notebooks, vintage dresses, and love letters. In addition to making art, Amanda teaches children.
