North County native Amanda Oswald paints and creates art from her home in Vista, CA. Inspired by real life, nature, and dreams, her bright colors give her paintings and mixed media creations acharacter that is uniquely her own. Oswald began her “rediscovery” of art in 2015 and has dedicated herself to it since 2017. Oswald paints daily, seeing painting as therapy, using it to harness creative energy and release stress. Oswald enjoys creating palette knife abstracts, and breathing life into images with her vivid choice of colors.
