DYEING

AND 

SILK PAINTING

Dyeing to Amanda is like cooking, just with chemicals and colors. 

 

In Graduate School Amanda got interested in silk painting and her love and appreciation has increased and she continues to silk paint for fun and for productions at the Puppet Kitchen in New York City.
