Amanda Jones’s artistry is an essential part of a greater cycle; after growing up in a home and community awash in creative expression, she now extends the same opportunity to students of all ages. Though she is a practitioner of many art forms, Amanda specializes in mixed media sculpture and fiber arts; her gifts typically manifest themselves as enigmatic folk art and intricately woven shawls.
