Amanda Brunell

My work focuses on realism and the challenge of bringing my art to life. My influences include the delicate nature of a ballerina and the natural environment of living in Vermont.

Ever since I started High School I was always curious about art. My passion continued in my adult years, expressing myself in baking and cake decorating. My passion for creating exploded in 2018 when I found myself drawing early in the morning while the rest of my family slept. I found colored pencils to be my best tools and love the challenge of creating a picture to look as real as possible.

I recently found the stunning results of drawing with white pencil on black paper. When I choose a subject to draw, I focus on the shapes of the highlights and not necessarily the whole picture. It's wonderful how lots of little shapes can create a whole picture.
