March 2017 Artist of the Month

Amanda Zappler

I use art as a means of self-expression – I paint to identify with hidden qualities of my character, to better understand my reality, and to express my interpretation of the world around me. My goal is to use my paintbrush like Alice’s rabbit hole, to open an unexplored world, a place of curious self-expression, but also a world of new relationships, new chances, new beginnings, and most importantly new stories. I’m never far from a sketchbook or scrap paper, so I am constantly drawing, or thinking about drawing. Sometimes the drawings are left in the sketchbook, the bottom of my purse or backpack, or remain in my imagination, and other times they develop into more in-depth ideas and detailed images winding up as paintings. I primarily use gouache, pen, chalk and acrylics on a variety of surfaces. I love the bright colors and rich textures that occur when mediums are combined. I hope my art conveys a sense of hopefulness and joy. I experience so much pleasure from painting that it is my desire to pass a bit of this along to the viewer. If a piece of my artwork can bring a smile to someone as they pass by, then I have been successful!
