Amanda Foss Art 
Unique and whimsical art, intertwining fantasy with the natural world.
Artist Bio~​
I was born in 1975, in the Southeastern United States, and like most artists, my love for painting and drawing began at an early age. One of my fondest childhood memories is sitting with my Grandmother in the front room of her house and watching her paint. I can still smell the oils and turpentine she used, and I remember longing to pick up one of her brushes and play with the shiny wet paints. Though she worked mainly in oils, when it came time for me to learn she started me out with acrylics, and I have been in love ever since.

She was a talented artist and a huge influence on me growing up… always encouraging my creative side, and sharing with me all that she had learned, but other than my Grandmother's lessons, I am virtually self-taught. My approach to painting is very instinctual and intuitive, and I feel an almost irresistible drive to be creative... I often feel smothered if I suppress that for too long. 

Art is my way of expressing my love of Fantasy and Nature, and my work is created mostly using Acrylic paints, although I do occasionally enjoy using other mediums such as colored pencil, soft Pastels and charcoal. I am also fascinated with digital painting, and hope to pursue that more in the future.
