Amanda has been painting people for about 20 years. She started out as a clown in Pittsburgh, but after moving to Chicago in 1996, she focused on face and body painting. When she started getting more calls for face painting than she could handle, she enlisted the help of friends to paint faces, make balloon animals, draw caricatures, and more.
Fine Point Productions was established by Amanda in 1998 as an event planning company, but she now focuses mostly on face painting and fortune telling. After an event in Chicago where her paint water literally froze, Amanda relocated to Los Angeles...partly because there's a lot more summer there.
She is a graduate of the Second City Conservatory and a few other improv programs in Chicago. She has produced several conventions and theatrical events, including ALCON: The Weird Al Yankovic Fan Convention; The Improv Challenge, a competitive improv show; Sharko Bizarre's Gong Show; and Playing With Matches, the Improv Singles Party. With her growing talent pool of LA artists, Fine Point Productions offers entertainment for events of all sizes.
Amanda comes from a family of artists. Her mother is a painter and co-manages a gallery, and her father and brother work together in a pottery studio.
In her spare time she is a Powerpoint specialist and enjoys scuba diving and performing stand-up comedy.
