Amandinette is a daydreamer and storyteller who believes in sharing the simple joys of life through creative art. Wordless pictures are one of her favorite mediums because they reveal the sweetness of passing moments that often go unnoticed.
A lifelong learner and curious adventurer, she believes that Saint Augustine was onto something when he said “the world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. Some of her favorite places to be are along the Californian coastline and the farmers’ markets of southern France. When she’s not visiting new places and meeting new people, she likes to cook French soups, study grammar books, and sit outside in the summer sun with a bowl of raspberries.
She knew that capturing those wordless stories would one day take her places when she won a Valentine’s Day card making contest in the 4th grade. She’s won other more important contests and awards since. She studied literature and languages at the Sorbonne in Paris, and now paints from her studio deep in the forests of rural Pennsylvania. Cherry red has been her favorite color since she was three-years-old.
