FRIENDS WITH SKILLS: AMANDA COOTE

My beautiful friend Mandy is an incredible artist and so I thought I would share some of her work with you. I love the way she uses a vivid colour palette to create unique pieces that have a street style sensibility.  She mostly works on canvas, using acrylic paint and posca pens. Become her fan on Facebook HERE or if you are interested in getting Mandy to paint a custom piece for you email her HERE.

AMANDA COOTE - ARTIST
Drawing and crafting have been a part of Amanda's life for as long as she can remember. 
She gained an early interest in graffiti-style art, along with bold, bright colours, and chose to  combine them with wide open landscapes, psychedelic creatures and weird plant life. Her work comes to life and brightens your day.

Amanda moved to Melbourne from Ballina/Byron Bay in 2001 and has been inspired ever since by the amazing displays of creativity on Melbourne walls and in the local art scene.

Amanda has hosted a number of exhibitions and has had her work hung in various galleries around Melbourne. She has also designed stages with art installations - her latest design was used on the Market Stage at Rainbow Serpent Festival 2010. 

Most of Amanda's work is on canvas using acrylic paint and posca pens.

Amanda now also has her Diploma of Make up and freelances around Melbourne, specialising in Special Effects Make Up.

All Amanda's art and custom pieces are available for purchase. Amanda can be contacted via facebookmyspace or email.
