An awkward bookish child who grew into an awkward bookish adult, Amanda Lockwood now lives in Portland Oregon. Drawing parallels between the natural world, science, art and literature is the focus of her work. A degree in microbiology, a passion for restoring old books and an uncomfortable level of curiosity come together to create art that is based on observation folded to become abstract. The fundamental belief that no one way of looking at the world will provide a representative picture is at the core of her art.
