Art, Life & Amanda Fe
“Art is so much like a human being; growing, regressing, maturing,
succumbing…it is alive. It can hurt. It can heal. It can offend. It can educate.
To make art is to discover oneself. This self discovery and self acceptance that art facilitates is what drives my creativity. I paint the positive, capture the beautiful, communicate what words cannot. I continuously search for new ways to create a work of art that moves people. It is a complex process.

My art is simple…it celebrates life.”
