About Amanda Amend

Amanda Amend Amanda Amend captures the mystery behind the everyday in luminous watercolor. Often described as atmospheric and ethereal, the subtle qualities of her work are balanced by a powerful, disciplined use of color, values, and compositional choices that reflect unique perspectives.

The artist recently discovered her passion for watercolor, and she is largely self-taught. Her educational background is in music and linguistics rather than in studio arts, however those disciplines have given her the analytical and practice-oriented frameworks from which to master watercolor's difficult techniques. Further, the structures of language and music provide a conceptual basis for understanding visual composition, and these careers have taken her across the U.S. and abroad, to places and experiences which inspire her paintings.

Vermont is now Amanda's home, and in her twelve years of painting she has won awards in exhibitions throughout the state. She is a signature member of the Vermont Watercolor Society, and she has shown in juried, invitational and solo exhibitions. In 2019 a collaboration with the Barn Opera Company of Brandon, Vermont, spotlighted her work, and the watercolor "Her Breakaway" won the Finley Memorial Award at the prestigious Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition. Amanda's glowing watercolors are in private collections throughout the United States and in Europe.
