Where are you located? Brisbane, Australia
How long have you been drawing and designing? I have been drawing since a small child and a professional graphic designer for 15 years after graduating from the Queensland College of Art.
What inspired you to get started? My Father inspired me to draw when I was little, he is a very talented artist. He was a screen printer and sign writer by trade and also illustrated comic strips for The Australian.
What do you do when you’re not creating? I'm a mother of three small children which keeps me very busy during daylight hours. I love spending time with my family and friends. (I probably should pay more attention to the dreaded housework.)
Do you remember the first item you sold? Yes - my Woolly Mammoth Dream limited edition art print. I sold it to a lady in the United States.
What is your favourite item you have created? My Paris Collection. It's hanging on my daughter's bedroom wall. I think it's really playful, featuring a little girl wearing her mother's oversized shoes which just happen to match her pet poodle.
The item that has most meaning to me is my Kissing Frogs illustration as this was the very first artwork I completed for my Twinkle Star Art shop.
Thank you Amanda! (I've had Amanda's artwork bookmarked for ages, I simply can't decide which I like the best, they are just gorgeous!)
She still sews.
