Hi there!

I’m Amanda, and I’m so happy you stopped by! Welcome to my studio!

I'm a mixed media artist. I use a variety of mediums on a canvas to bring an unusual twist of texture to my pieces. I most often paint with acrylics using a palette knife, but I might also add bits of clippings, paper doilies, or other elements to bring an unexpected pattern or structure to the surface of the canvas.

Artist: Amanda Hilburn

I also love making our home a cozy and happy place for my family to live. I believe that homemaking is an art and can be a lot of fun. The cottage style speaks to my heart the most, and while I don’t like clutter, I do like to create a cozy room filled with softness, creativity, and warmth. I am passionate about the reality that your environment can play a big part in your overall mental health, productivity, and even be inspirational in creativity.


This belief is where my art journey really began. I am actually an accidental artist that didn't go looking for a business... it found me. When I was a content 33 year old homemaker and homeschool mom, I was trying to be frugal, so I painted something for our living room wall because I couldn't afford to buy the art that I really wanted to hang. I shared my painting on social media and soon began taking orders! Everything really evolved from that one painting and my tiny bit of blogging experience that I had gained because of homeschooling.  (You can see that first painting and read a little more about it here: My Story) I started blogging about art, got on Etsy, and kept on painting. A few years later, I learned how to create my own website where I now sell my work and teach art lessons. I was contacted about illustrating a children's book and have very recently been contacted by companies about licensing some of my work. Both of these opportunities came from my social media sharing.

It's really crazy how this all happened. I didn't know I wanted this, but I don't think I could do without it now. I am a very shy and introverted person, so I've had to really push myself to find some quiet courage and follow these new and unexpected dreams. In the process, I've learned so much about myself and how creativity can change your life. It's my biggest wish to help others see their potential and know their worth.


I hope that you’ll discover lovely things here in my gallery that can help you to create a cozy environment in your own home, and I want to encourage you to dream big! Pursue your dreams, and never stop learning!
