Born in Montreal, Canada 1988, Amanda is a self-taught Artist who started drawing the world around her as soon as she could hold a pencil.
She features tutorials, art challenges, and fun art stories on her channel, The Buzzed Artist on Youtube. Amanda believes everyone can be creative; it's only a matter of being brave enough to pick up a brush and create!
As a child, she was often found carrying multiple sketchbooks filled to the brim with sketches, comics, cartoons, and still life drawings.
After moving to Massachusetts, Amanda pursued a life in engineering but found her heart was always in her art, eventually earning her a Minor in Digital Art in 2012.
Amanda is experienced with pencil sketching and eventually moved onto using more complex mediums like acrylic paint to create artwork that tells a story, particularly through her favorite topic: facial expressions.
