Amanda’s hyper-realistic compositions reference both classical and contemporary symbolism and iconography.

Her most recent work includes paintings of women in a variety of positions with flowers coming out of their backs, balancing on their foreheads, or covering their faces. She aims to address the emotional and societal pressure to conform to a certain ideal that women face, as well as her interest in the symbolic duality of flowers as fragile, beautiful and sexual but also strong, persistent and adaptable.
