Bio
My name is Amanda Voris, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and now live in the Monterey area. I have my genes to thank for my artistic abilities; I grew up with two very artistic parents. My father has had a passion for creative writing since he was very young. As a small girl I remember often seeing him at his desk listening to classical music writing short stories and poems. My mother used paint to express her creativity; a hobby of hers was ceramics. In her spare time she painted everything from salt and pepper shakers to animal sculptures. At about five years old I loved to sit and watch her paint with great precision. Finally one day I asked if I could paint too. The very next day my mother bought me my own water color set, ever since then I was always drawing or painting.

The first serious art class I took was in high school. That is where I first used acrylic paints and loved it. In my next advanced class I was inspired by one of my teachers to take my art to the next level. I began entering my work in contests and selling them. The first piece of art I’d ever sold was when I was a junior in high school; it was a copy of one of my paintings for fifty dollars. The girl who bought my art noticed it at a school art show at a local cafe. She expressed to me how much she loved the piece, and she said she couldn’t describe exactly how it made her feel, but it was a great feeling. As she was explaining this to me I could see in her eyes the wonderment and sincerity. That was the moment I realized I could make a difference in the world with my art. Even though it was such a small thing my art gave someone else happiness and I thought that was amazing. When I realized that, I wanted to spread it around the world and make as many happy moments for as many people as I could. So I truly hope after you read this you’ll look at my art and at least one small happy moment will occur in your life and in the world.
