Amanda Michael

Artist Austin, TX

Born and Raised in a dysfunctional town in New Mexico, I was raised to believe in art, nature and love. But then I got beat up in elementary school, so now I’m cynical as all hell. In 2000 I moved to Austin, TX, and after 15 years here, I now consider myself a full fledged Austinite.
