Amanda is an artist with a heart for people. She loves creating decorative art to brighten up a home or an office environment , bringing joy and pleasure to the soul. And she plans to be successful enough to start a home for helping others stand on their own feet in discovering their own talents.
She started her art career in Indonesia back in 1995 while being a stay at home mom.
Success came soon after and she branched out into her own line of t-shirts with positive messages for wearers. Not just a dreamer, she believes in implementing her dreams into a reality.
Her aim is to someday own a large house on a beautiful site where she can hold workshops to help her fellow men find a haven and a way to get on their own feet by teaching them how to fish. She does not believe in just giving a person fish, she wants to see them able to stand on their own two feet as well!
Laughter and warmth is important in Amanda's life and she hopes her art will convey the message as well.
