Amanda Lee Greene
As an artist and illustrator, I try to create images that connect with people, often drawing upon themes of childhood and memory. I work in a dimensional style, crafting physical puppets and scenes that are then photographed to obtain a final illustration. I prefer the tactility of working this way and feel that it gives my work a sense of physicality.
