Amanda Trader's Profile
My name is Amanda Trader. I am 31 years old and live in Asheville, NC with my wife, Liz, and our 2 cats, Molly and Neko. I have a B.A. degree in Women's Studies from the University of Georgia and a K-6 Teaching License from the University of North Carolina Asheville. I am a Teacher Assistant at an elementary school.
Art is a huge part of my life. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I began painting when I was 18 and I began making prints when I was 24.
I am inspired by abstract, modern pieces with bold lines and bright colors. I remember feeling an immediate connection to the work of Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol when I was growing up. I also love the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Yayoi Kusama.
I love to make art…
