Profile Information

Art Alters

From the moment I discovered mudpies and bread bag twist ties, I have been creating. Gift wish lists were always filled with art supplies. I love to learn new techniques and incorporate watercolor, collage, acrylic painting and polymer clay into my multimedia art and digital scrapbook designs.

My other interests include ethnic cooking, photography and illustration. I am currently working on illustrating a children’s book with my Mother, the author.  I love different cultures and travel. I am the mother of two grown kids, wife of 29 years to a great man and have one mega fur baby- a 35lb Maine Coon cat. I am a former educator and missionary, and remain a free lance artist, doing commissioned work, and hosting an Art Journal workshop "ARTchaeology Of the Soul" at Go Digital Scrapbooking.com

I have been dubbed with the name "Altered Amanda" due to my love of altered art. But it goes deeper than that. I believe The Creator deposited creativity in everyone. Once a person discovers their expression of that deposit, they are forever altered, and the sharing of that creativity in turns alters others. :)

Thank you Amanda for your suggestions.  I'll use  them on my next project.  And yes it would be cool to have the see through layers in an underwater scene.  By the way your art works are really great!
