Amanda did such an amazing job on painting our logo on the wall of our martial arts studio. She was so easy to work and communicate with as well as prompt and professional. Can't recommend her enough!

Amanda was fabulous to work with on this project. From start to finish she was professional and personable! She offered options and ideas and I really felt like she embraced the project with us. Aside from that - she’s a fabulous artist and the end result was exactly what we wanted! An all round excellent experience and fantastic value for money!! I wouldn’t hesitate to employ Amanda again!!

About
Hi there! I’m a mural artist and signwriter originally from New York, now residing in Melbourne, Australia. I absolutely love painting large scale portraiture projects in the public realm, however I also pride myself on being able to realise any client’s vision on any surface. I have been working as a full time commercial artist for 18+ years. My background is quite different from many mural artists in that I got my start traveling around the world painting theme parks. The result is that my experiences have been vast and varied, and so I can handle projects of any scale in any forum. I did art direction for two months in Seoul, S. Korea, directing dozens of local artists without knowing any Korean. There is no situation that intimidates me! I've painted retail giants, famous holiday windows, gilded mansions, large grocery store chains, theatre sets, alcohol brands, and of course coffee shops & restaurants. I've also conducted workshops with kids and participated in numerous community fundraising projects. I pride myself on my professionalism, prompt communication, attention to detail, organisation and cleanliness. I'm also a friendly and non-intimidating person when working in the public realm, which makes the process of every project just as fun and interesting for the public as the final product. My goal is to make the entire process as easy and seamless for my clients as possible - from initial contact, to all communication, to designs, site logistics, installation, cleanup, and final signoffs with the client. To me, a successful project isn't only about the final product - although I'm a perfectionist about that too! I've been concentrating on my personal street art over the past year during the pandemic lockdown, and use it as a way to bring attention to societal issues. I would welcome any professional projects with deeper meaning beyond the pretty picture (although that's okay too). Thanks for reading and I look forward to chatting about your next project!

I do not mind replicating an existing design

Pick me for these projects! :-

Portraiture and realism are my passion, but I also love painting bold, graphic designs. The bigger the better! Handpainted ads. I am a professional signwriter as well, so jobs involving lettering make me happy. Painting big letters or logos on buildings are really fun for me. I also love projects involving community engagement and/or workshops with children.

I'll sit these ones out :-
