Well, hello there! My name is Amanda. Welcome to my playground!
I'm a graphic designer and digital illustrator who was born and raised on the west coast of British Columbia.
My goal is to tell a story through design and illustration to inspire happy lives and put a smile on people's faces. My work is whimsical and, sometimes, cheeky in nature, and is reflective of the life I live; Happy, colourful, adventurous.
I studied art and design at UFV, BCIT, and Emily Carr over a period of 6 years and landed full time work in the industry shortly after.
Since 2006, I have been designing and illustrating for mostly in-house positions and over the last couple of years, have been dedicating evenings and weekends to personal projects. This has allowed me to explore new ideas as well as improve and refine my processes, while making the final pieces available for sale online. This has led to many small successes over the years like being selected for small group art shows and online curated art collections. Most recently, selling items like patches, stickers, and buttons from my Etsy shop.
