happy. fresh. fun.
I discovered my passion for art at the colorful age of four. With homemade necklaces draped around my neck and paint caked in my hair, I delved into every artistic project with enthusiasm. Whether I was drawing with crayons, stringing beads, or painting pottery, I was happy. Throughout my childhood, my mom encouraged me to freely experiment with art. Although she was a talented artist herself, she never told me how to knead the clay or what colors to use. This freedom to create allowed me to freely express myself.
At 20, my passion for art remains. I still enjoy sculpting the moist clay, painting the ceramic, and sharing the final masterpiece. Art has offered an unrivaled sense of personal fulfillment and joy as I have realized how making something beautiful positively affects people.
Recognizing this joy inspired me to start Artful Purpose--a program dedicated to providing disadvantaged and hospitalized children the opportunities to create art. Artful Purpose is a synthesis of my passion for art and love of people.

As I start to get more involved with design, I become even more excited about the prospect of touching more people through art. The most amazing thing about starting my Etsy shop is that I could now reach more people than I ever could have imagined and thus increase my impact in Arts In Healing.
The best compliment I have ever received from a customer was, "Your pottery makes me happy." And that is my goal--to spread a little happiness around in the world because the world needs more happy.
Hello Sweet People! My name is Amanda, and I have been creating and selling pottery since I was 5 years old. I am currently a student at the University of Southern California. I'm always being inspired by the beautiful, brilliant, world around me.
