Amanda Cruz


As a child I had always loved doing art and going to museums, but it wasn’t until high school that I decided to pursue art as a career. I studied art at UC Santa Cruz where I explored such mediums as printmaking, drawing, collaging, painting, sculpture, and book making. Originally from Southern California, I am looking forward to joining the art scene in San Francisco. I’m greatly influenced by poster art, CD art, and even advertisements. Places that I have traveled to and the people I have met also tend to creep into my art. Since graduating college in 2009 I’ve participated in art shows in Los Angeles and went abroad to teach English for a year in South Korea. I value all of those experiences because they have helped me grow as a person and an artist.
