About the Artist

Amanda Pearson is a mixed media artist who lives in the Twin Cities, MN (but grew up in Portland, OR). In college, she majored in Art Education and after graduating has found a niche in elevating the mundane materials that are often forgotten in the back of the craft drawer. Her focus is currently on pieces created by gluing embroidery floss, but she also uses other media such as dots (made out of colored pencils or paint), glued hole punches from cardstock paper, and has even made a mosaic from recycled used gift cards. Her work requires time, and it takes a lot of it – each piece takes months to create. These pieces aim to capture a moment of time in spaces that could be considered sacred. Nature is used to represent these significant moments.
