Meet The Artist!
23-year-old Amanda Kreidlkamp is a North Fargo native following her passion for art. Art, however, was not always the path she wanted to follow. While attending nursing school at NDSU, she decided to take an art class to relieve stress and found herself spending more time than expected in the art studio. After some thought, she decided to switch her major to art education her freshman year.
What Inspires Amanda?
Kreidlkamp is a huge fan of painting, mostly with acrylics and oil paint, often using mixed media to complete her pieces. A fun piece she likes to incorporate in her latest art is pops of fur, noting only faux fur is used and she is a huge animal lover. She said one artist that inspires her work is MC Escer, who was known for modern art. Escer was a Dutch artist, well known for his graphic designs with bazaar optical illusions.
Her Fabricated Retrospection artwork series ( eyes, nose, mouth, rainbow, purple eye pattern) depicts a series of memories. Each piece has a relationship to the next experience.
