Amanda Hanlon is a painter and printmaker. She lives and works out of her home located in a historic river town in Minnesota. Born and raised in Wisconsin, Amanda spent much of her adult life living on the East and West Coasts of the country. In 2016 she moved to Minnesota to be closer to her family.
Amanda has received a MFA in Painting from the University of Washington - Seattle, a BFA in Painting from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. She has taught classes in Painting, Drawing and Printmaking in Savannah, Georgia. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Minnesota, California, Georgia, Washington and Wisconsin. 
Her paintings, prints and digital paintings were recently featured in the show "Shape, Space, Structure" at ArtReach St. Croix in Stillwater, MN. Her painting “Dining Room in Winter'' won the Best of Show award at the Robbin Gallery Juried Exhibition in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. 
Having lived, worked and visited many cities and states in her adult life, a sense of place and home has become an endless source of inspiration for Amanda.
