Amanda Makepeace Art

We have now received 2 of the 6 commissioned watercolor art cards from Amanda Makepeace Art and we are so excited to see the other 4!

I made Amanda's acquaintance two years ago via an Internet friend from the UK through her own Indiegogo Campaign. She was raising money to fund the purchase of art supplies and I really connected with her! My own background in the fine arts still has me longing to be that person that can spend her days through creative pursuits and her story just felt right! As the saying goes, everyone is brought into your life for a reason!

The perk for the donation I chose was 12 months of original watercolor art cards (ACEO's), and since watercolor is my favorite painting medium it was really a no-brainer for me to offer my support! Those twelve months were just wonderful and for me it was like getting a present in the mail every month and I loved every single art card I received!

During that year, I discovered that Amanda is not your usual watercolor artist. She is also a published visual artist and writer from just outside Athens, Georgia and I do believe that her first real love is Sci-Fi! She is happily living the dream and my life is much richer having met her - if only via the internet!

Below is an example of Amanda's amazing digital art from her Sci-Fi Genre. This work can be purchased through Fine Art America's Website and is especially intriguing! Please be sure to take a look, because her work definitely offers something for everyone!

When I approached Amanda about this project, she enthusiastically agreed to be a part of our dream and she immediately hit the mark with her sketches on all 6 ACEO's! I am anxiously awaiting delivery of the remaining 4 watercolors and if the first two are any indication, we are in for a real treat! They are being offered through our Indirgogo Campaign for a donation of $75.00 and they will arrive, matted, framed and signed by Amanda and just in time to make the perfect gift for that special someone in your life!

And thanks to Amanda's kindness, she has allowed us the use of the Copyright for print purposes so we can offer these wonderful paintings as a set of beautiful note cards for a $20.00 donation - another fabulous gift idea or a lovely treat to yourself!
