Thank you for viewing. I am Amanda Walls, 32, and I love sharing my passion for art with the world. I have always wanted to be an artist and a photographer. I find culture fascinating in this vast world we live in where very little is known. I chose rituals as my theme throughout this book and wanted to showcase the practices these cultures utilize daily for health, balance, spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical connection. We all have something in life that gives us that sense of purpose, and I feel this book represents us all in some way. This experience has been enlightening, educational, and challenging. I am passionate and ambitious to show the world what I love. I am motivated to become an artist different from those that I am inspired by. Those artists tend to create with one medium, one vision, and are limited in their creativity. I chose to name my art venture and business, 'Everything Under the Sun Art and Photography', because I want to create everything under the sun. I desire to learn every medium, every skill, technique, and art form available. My art is a reflection of me, my life, what is occurring at that moment. Visions that speak to me and hopefully to others. I am passionate about a variety of things in life and try to show that in my art and photography. I am learning and growing, as I believe we all are and always will be.
I will end with a quote that I love by Victoria Erickson
"An artist is typically a being that is filled with so much passion, love, or pain for certain lands, people, ideas, or images that all they can do with that overflow is bleed it out by creating. And with this type of art, the energy will be shifted from the depths of them and into the depths of the audience to be felt. It is a dance. A transference. An intimacy. It is to touch and awaken another human in a place they hadn't known was aching, or sleeping. Both are opened. Both are nourished. Both are transformed."
Thank you for viewing my sketchbook and learning a little about me, I hope that you follow me on my journey and that I can touch and awaken you through my artwork.
