Amanda moved to the Florida Keys in 2015 with her husband Ivar. Her previous love of clay from her college days blossomed in the Morada Way Arts District in Islamorada, FL where she worked as a studio artist for 1 year. Her heart set on the quiet and natural areas of the Keys, she moved south to Big Pine Key where she has been working from her home studio ever since creating functional clay art. She most recently added works created with her laser cutter, lobster trap art and sea glass art. She can also be seen working the Gallery on Saturdays.
