Amanda is a native of a small city called Auburn, located in the Fingerlakes Region of New York. She was brought up in the outdoors, visiting the Adirondacks and New England regularly. She is a recent graduate of Binghamton University, where she studied Environmental Studies with a focus in Anthropology. Various modes of the arts (and crafts) have been weaved into Amanda's life for as long as she can remember. She has dabbled in drawing & painting, ceramics, photography, basket-weaving, card-making, online design, sewing, cross-stitching, DIY-projects (often gone wrong), and so on. She is always down to de-stress with some time outdoors or in the kitchen baking or cooking. The best way to peak her interest is to tell her about your pet(s) or favorite animal(s)!
