Conceptual Art & Storytelling
I’m Amanda, otherwise known as A.E. I have always held stories and images inside my head; it just wasn’t until recently that I’ve let them out.
Once upon a time, I was a health researcher. I spent over 15 years in health and research, earning a masters and a doctorate degree and conducting studies focused on mental health, risk behavior and behavior change. I use what I’ve learned in research and as a subsequent health coach to explore emotional health, behavior, and issues that we struggle with as a society through the medium of art. This is because sometimes it’s not just words that touch but a picture. Sometimes what we feel is too difficult to describe, and the best way to capture it is through imagery.
I am a self-taught photographer and retoucher who uses digital manipulation to create images that tell a story, communicate an idea, and evoke emotion. I’ve spent my life experimenting with different forms of art – including visual arts but also dance, music and theatre. I use everything I learn to create imagery to touch and inspire, educate and make people think.
What I hope to achieve through art: connection, healing, and empowerment
Why I call myself a conceptual artist & storyteller: Other people might call me a fine art photographer or digital artist. I use the term ‘conceptual artist’ because I am driven first and foremost by concept. Everything in my images is there for a reason. I aim to create stories using one or many images, and I’m interested in working with people who share this goal.
