Amanda Rea's unconscious burst of creativity began about the age of 5. She had a natural musical sense which drew her to the arts; Dancing and Singing. Her artistic inspiration comes from her grandfather, Emileo, who was a natural born artist. He painted in oils on massive canvas which were displayed throughout his apartment and public places in Queens, NY. At the age of 7, Amanda's Grandfather gave her a large canvas to explore her artistic ability. Amanda didn't discover her own unique style until a few years ago, when she sketched a photo of a Lion. Amanda sketched for fun, but then realized she had a natural artistic ability. A few weeks later, Amanda purchased canvas and started creating acrylic paintings. "I was walking in Target with my boyfriend, and noticed the artwork sold there and said to him "why can't my art be sold in here?" She immediately found a contact number, and with the help of TradeMark Art she is now a contracted artist. Amanda is currently creating art pieces for Sears, Overstock, and more.
