Since no creative soul can flourish on art-for-clients alone, I’ve been exploring alternate creative outlets, and I think I’ve found one that suits. I’ve taken up screen printing – specifically, screen printing on clothing. Screen printing intrigued me because it can have a range of looks (rough and sketchy, to crisp and clean), and was something I could try myself without having to pay for fancy art classes or massive equipment. And it lends itself easily to both experimentation, and repetition – so when I find a design that I like and that works, I can use it again and again, in different colors, on whatever I want. I’m pretty excited about it. And, as a bonus, since I’ll print on way more pieces of clothing than I can wear myself, I can put the extras up for sale. Ideally, it’ll turn into a fun, nifty little side business.
She is an expert at interpreting the needs of the client, and produces imaginative and innovative designs. Amanda never misses a deadline and is very easy to work with no matter how large or small the project.
