CREATED BY Amanda Benaim
Creating and learning through art has always taken a backseat to my full time job or school, but it has always been a rock for me in my life. I have a knack for realism, blending, and capturing light in my paintings. When I’m not painting commissions, I paint for myself, for release. I mainly work with Acrylic and watercolors, but recently have started creating with Alcohol Inks and Liquid Acrylic.
People commission me to paint pretty much anything they want, so it may seem like there is no theme to my work. So many things inspire me; science, shoes, other artists on social media, running, landscapes! When a wave of creativity hits, I just ride it.
As a full-time Physiotherapist, I love mixing my passion and knowledge of anatomy and science into my art. I am also a huge sneaker head, I love learning to use new mediums, and I like to challenge myself by attempting to re-make originals with a twist. There’s not much method to my madness other then that I love painting.
