Today we’d like to introduce you to Amanda LaMarco.
Amanda, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I hail from the depths of Northern New Jersey where all I wanted to do was draw, paint, climb trees and find the Jersey Devil. I pursued art throughout school and ended up studying Motion graphics and Visual Effects in Philadelphia. I started my motion career in New York city and after many different gigs I ended up in the place where I always knew I would, Los Angeles. I now am a senior motion graphic designer working in advertising and television.
Important note, I wouldn’t have been where I am today without my loving, supportive family. I am very grateful!
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I currently paint in watercolor mostly. I paint and draw whenever I have free time. I am constantly creating content at work on a computer so it is important to me that my passion doesn’t feel like work. When I feel like doing it I do it.
My aesthetic interests are always changing so I just paint what I am feeling at the moment. I am currently getting back into old cars and bikes and of course skulls.
I don’t really have a message with my art. I just paint because it’s in my blood. I don’t think every artist needs to have a message and that some of us are here to make pretty things to look at.
Do you think conditions are generally improving for artists? What more can cities and communities do to improve conditions for artists?
Just make art for yourself. There will always be an audience.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
