Amanda Page Stephens

Raised by the Norfolk art community, Amanda's path into art was natural. Starting with drawing and then painting, she quickly incorporated found objects into her work. At the age of 16, Amanda began to show her work publicly. Shortly thereafter, she was accepted into the Governor's School for the Arts; this experience propelled her to further explore her artistic curiosity and experimentation. While attending school at the Art Institute of Chicago, she was encouraged to experiment with numerous mediums including performance, video, fiber and sound art. Her explorations of expression returned to mixed media and the incorporation of discarded materials which she has repurposed and injected, sometimes literally, into her works. As a member of the Hermitage Studio Artist Program since 2008, she has honed in on collaborating her wide use of natural pigments with painting incorporating found objects onto cohesive works. Currently Amanda is fascinated with alternative mark making methods such as tea, coffee, wine, cigarette burns, and other non traditional pigments. She enjoys challenging her audience to not only rethink what art is made from but also encourages the public to contribute to the process by co-creating works with her.
