Coming from a small town in Nova Scotia, Amanda now resides in Toronto. She has explored a variety of career paths throughout her professional life ranging from retail work, to helping create wedding invitations, and in recent years, various roles within the youth non-profit sector.
Art has always played a role in her personal life as a way of expression when the words aren’t quite there. She wishes she had known about DAREarts when she was a young person trying to find her voice but is excited to watch others discover theirs.
If Amanda were an art form, she would be a mixed media collage. Lots of variety in what has created the final product, but room to add something extra here and there as time goes on.
When not working, she is likely spending time with her cat Boba, cozy on the couch watching a horror movie. She probably has some sushi or a taco nearby.
