Bio & Statement

Amanda Hawkins is a painter living and working in Portland, Maine.

"I identify as a landscape painter, however my paintings are not necessarily of a specific place, rather a collage of the many places on my mind. My process is spontaneous and reactionary, I do not force my subject matter but instead let the painting form organically. Memories and photographs of places I've been, and mental images of places I want to go coalesce on my canvas.  The resultant paintings are emotionally charged reflections of myself, my past experiences and future ambitions."
