Amanda is an artist who is just starting out in her talent and has been drawing since she was a child. Her choosen style of art currently is fantasy and tries to tell a story with each piece of work.
This piece is called "Forest Guardian" and was created in July 2003. Forest Guardian is a story of an elf who has gone beyond the point of mortality to protect the forests of the world, day and night. Her staff blades are crossed downward to symbolize justice that is balanced and not in action but in a pose of being ready for action.
