Editor's note

Amanda has diverse training and boasts a strong background in fashion and design, including a degree in fashion design and a diploma in makeup artistry, strongly focused on fashion and film. Inspired by high-end designers, fashion icons, and the finer things in life, the elevated artworks blend rich, striking colours with landscapes, textures, and precious materials. With a passion for interior design, photography and contemporary art, Amanda’s original pieces are crafted utilising digital layers and collage methods. The Melbourne-based artist skillfully overlays 24k gold leaf, silver leaf, oil sticks, acrylic paints and charcoal into original pieces. The final result? A multi-dimensional creation that will truly elevate any living space. Amanda’s art is a mix of her passions and desires. From feminine nudes to luxury fashion, each piece is designed to celebrate and hero the power of femininity. In addition to her bustling artistic career, Amanda is also a partner in an International Italian furniture, lighting and art showroom which has been in operation for over 13 years. The artist currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
