Amanda Adams (b. 1977, California, United States) is a self-taught painter working primarily in oil on canvas and wood. Her work distills feelings of space, emptiness, and fullness into large, lively, and sometimes crude physical form. She is influenced by the southern Californian deserts of her childhood, and, having lived in Quebec in her early adult years, the boundless and ever-changing Canadian landscape. Amanda began publicly showing her work in 2016, and since then has participated in several exhibitions, most notably Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts’ auction group show and ‘Inventions in Color and Light’ at Lynnwood Convention Center, in 2018.

Amanda now lives and works near Seattle, Washington.
