About Me

Hey there, I'm Amanda, I am 33 and live in a cute little town near Toronto Ontario Canada!

I am an art teacher and artist. I love making collages with all of the beautiful things people generously swap with me! It's my fave part of this!

I started on here a few years back now after my grandfather passed away. It was a really hard time for me and this gave me the distraction I needed. It brought up my spirits again and it also lead me back into art which I recently went back to school for as well! My life is quite different since I started on here and I couldn't be more grateful..

Favorite Music

I LOVE music!!!! I am an avid concert goer and enjoy a huge variety of everything! I honestly like a little bit of every era and genre... but my heart lives in Rock n Roll...

My faves are, Green Day, Blink 182, Ramones, Rancid, Elton John, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, Queen, Lady Gaga, Journey, Avril Lavigne, Alexz Johnson, Carly Rae Jepsen, Adele, Spice Girls, Robyn, Lauren Hill, Mother Mother, Chrvches, Fun, Jimmy Eat World, Nirvana, No Doubt, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Drop kick Murphy's, Bleachers, The Tragically Hip, The Foofighters, Florence and the Machine, Our Lady Peace.

Favorite Movies

I am a little obsessed with Movies, way too many to list but a few faves would be: Now and Then, Little Women, Rent, The Greatest Showman, La La Land, The Giver, The Goonies, Scott Pilgrim, Juno, The way way back, The Princess Bride, Lady Bird, Lady and the Tramp, Inside Out.

Favorite Television

I love all kinds of TV.... Schitts Creek, Degrassi, Big Brother, Handmaids Tale, Gilmore Girls, Saved By The Bell, Jimmy Fallon.

Favorite Books

Awake and Dreaming, Little Women, A tree grows in Brooklyn, Harry Potter, Safe Haven.

Favorite Crafts

I love all types of art and any kind of craft! I mostly paint with acrylic but love to play around with oil and water colours as well. I love making collages, ceramics and printmaking -especially woodcuts. Anything to do with art or painting.. I am there!!

When it comes to crafts I love junk journals and scrapbooking. I collect all types of crafts, art kits, beads and love to paint rocks, birdhouses and whatever else I can get my hands on...

I love to collect different types of paper/ dress patterns/ cut outs/ old postage stamps/ book pages, for my collages. I love being able to use something no one wants anymore and creating something new out of it.
