The Beginning

A.J.'s Arts was founded by Amanda Marks, August 1995 in Escanaba, Michigan. A.J.'s Arts specialized in oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings as well as pen and ink drawings and sculpture. After moving to Savannah, Georgia in 1999 to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design for Historic Preservation with a emphasis in painting, Amanda did numerous commissioned paintings throughout her college years.

In 2009 Amanda added Designs to A.J.'s Arts creating the now A.J.'s Arts and Designs. A.J.'s Arts and Designs specializes in graphic design work and many different artistic mediums, ranging from painting to wood burning.

As the founder and sole artist of A.J.’s Arts, I take great pride in each handmade item I produce. My philosophy is if I wouldn’t wear it, display it, or let my children play with it - I won’t sell it. I work in a wide variety of media because I enjoy the challenge of a new medium. I take great pride in making each transaction as easy and personal as possible. I also document all of my crafting adventures on my blog: www.ajsarts.com (become a follower - I love to be followed :P)
