Oh hi there!
I’m Amanda. I’m a professional painter, a mom, a business-owner, and a world-class chocolate croissant enthusiast. You will never meet anyone who loves their life as much as I do. It was not always like this. It took me years to find my way here and I’ll tell you one thing: Everything that is good in my world started coming my way the day I started investing in my own art. Everything. It was the best decision I ever made. It is now my pleasure to share this gift with others. That's why I started the Insider's Studio. I'm so glad you are here!
Want a taste of what's in my Insider's Studio plus a sneak peek at Insider's Studio classes? Check out these freebies!

What is the Insider's Studio?
The Insider's Studio, a monthly membership that provides weekly lessons, a community of supportive artists, and so much more is for beginning and seasoned artists alike. Read: it is a safe space for you to learn and grow as an artist while supporting others on their art journeys. Before I get into the details of what comes with your membership, I want you to hear directly from artist members about how they have been transformed by being part of the Insider's Studio.

Just this month we are painting fall foliage, harvest moonscapes and and more. Here is a snapshot of what you'll get as part of the Insider's Studio.
A Growing Library of Art Classes
With a new online painting class every Tuesday, some live, you'll never run out of inspiration. Classes cover everything from technique to Disco Chickens to cloudscapes. Take them any time and at your own pace! Scroll down for the full class list.
A Supportive Group of Creative People Like You
The library of classes is just the start. The Insider's Studio has a private Facebook Group where your fellow artists share their work, tips, ask questions and more.
Tips, Tricks, and More
In addition to scheduled classes, I host a live Q&A every Sunday and frequently post mini-classes or rambles offering tips, tricks and insight into my experiences to help you grow as an artist.
Want even more? Here's the fall class calendar.
And this doesn't even include the additional pocket classes, Q&As and other opportunities to paint, learn and grow. A list of classes currently in the Insider's Studio is at the bottom of this webpage!
