I love many of the qualities in Amanda's ink and watercolor illustrations, but most of all I love her fearlessness. One look at her blog will tell you she is always looking for a new project, stretching herself as an artist. That is a trait which I both admire and aspire to.
Along with her varied portfolio, you can find Amanda illustrating recipes at They Draw & Cook, designing paper dolls, and even publishing her own e-picture book.
