Meet Alabama native Amanda Petro, our December Art Shop feature! Born with a desire to create, Amanda credits living in a town of artists and patrons of the arts for further encouraging and igniting her passion. We're personally drawn to the bright color palettes and textures seen throughout her work and hope you are too! 

"I work in oils and paint on canvas or wood panel. I work most often in an abstract expressionistic style. I let paint be paint. Experimentation plays an instrumental role in my work. I rely on intentional and intuitive mark making to create my paintings.  I’m constantly discovering new color combinations. Each color has a personality and I enjoy encouraging them to interact. I let what exists on a canvas dictate what's to come. Being open to any end result allows my work to evolve." - Amanda Petro
