inspired by nature, fairy tales, magic, and the colorful enchanted world around us.
Hey! I'm Amanda, an artist from New York. I'm experienced in many different art forms and have a unique background in fine art, graphic design, photography, art education, marketing, and web design. I've been an artist my whole life and have artists on both sides of my family! In 2017 I graduated from SUNY Brockport with a bachelors degree in Studio Art concentrating in Graphic Design. I then went on to pursue my masters degree in Art Education and became a K-12 Art Educator for over a year before realizing I wanted to change my path.
The name "Green Artist" stems from my passion of creating on natural materials and the constant nature themes in my work. I have multiple wildlife/nature artists in my family and have been inspired by them since childhood. Color psychology also inspired my business name choice, as the color green stands for balance, nature, and represents good luck, and growth.
Some favorite things of mine to do are paint with watercolors and oils, golden hour photography, wood burning art, typography focused graphic design, fantasy photoshop art, and so much more.
Along with being an artist, I also write poetry and am an aspiring fantasy romance writer. I currently have about 3 work in progress novels.
I also love to learn about crystals, astrology, and other intriguing things. In 2019 I started offering healing crystals in my shop. They fit in perfectly with my theme and I love sharing the magic! All crystals and stones are curated by me personally, and are ethically sourced.
In my spare time when I'm not working you can catch me reading up on history from many years ago, collecting Wizard of Oz memorabilia, listening to the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack on repeat, or playing with my two sweet dogs! I also have a blog website.
