No stranger to throwing caution to the wind, multidisciplinary artist Amanda Sandlin has come to appreciate the challenge and hidden rewards of being an unconventional artist. A self-taught designer and illustrator, Amanda captures art in nature centered on the bravery and vulnerability that comes with being a modern outdoor woman in the wild. Intricate illustrations are layered over abstract paintings or photographs, creating refined and unconventional bodies of work.
By being transparent and sharing her success stories and failures as both an artist and entrepreneur, Amanda proves you don’t need an art degree to pursue your passion. Her latest series #100daysofindependentstudy invites community members to embrace the entire creative process and feel empowered by it.
