Artist StatementWhat I want to give is a picture of an artist’s heart, my heart. I use simply the fingers on my hands, oil, and canvas. In a world of ups and downs, a positive expression immortalized on canvas can have a stable, meaningful influence in a room and in a life.
Artist BiographyAmanda Wathen is an emerging artist, working primarily in oil. She has painted since childhood and began working professionally at age thirteen, hand painting murals on tile. Between then and now, she has taught technique and art history.

ArtAscent art & literature 2017 Distinguished Artist Award. the Honorable Mention Award for the “Emotion and Energy of Color” 2017 Art Exhibition. She paints realism, pointillism, and impressionism.

Recently, Amanda has pioneered new techniques in the field of oil-based touch painting, an emerging artistic trend. Amanda says, "Finger-painting is unequivocally the most expressive. No concentration is lost to cleaning brushes, and no tool divides the artist and the canvas.”

What I Love Doing
Traveling, learning new languages, talking to people, gardening, playing the piano, cooking... but most of all painting.
What I Find Beautiful
Earth, people, my children, my gift of life.
My Favorite Memory
I was sitting in the hospital bed holding my daughter when my two-year-old asked to hold her. I reluctantly asked him to be placed by me and he reached over, kissed her gently and said, "There, there, my Mantha Cake" (Samantha Kate) his sister's name. This was the start of my children's life together. They have been best friends and the light of my life ever since.
My Favorite Art Style
Contemporary Impressionism

Description:This finger-painting, oil on panel was commissioned by a couple in Austin TX. They had just moved into their dream home. What had inspired their purchase was the 200 year old live oak in the front yard.
Send me a photo, music or text of what truly moves you and I can turn it into an immortal visual experience forever! I paint vibrant impressionistic finger-paintings full of movement. Working in oil on canvas.
