About Amanda

Amanda Nicole is a Denville, NJ artist. Her work is a combination of woodland creatures and the varied Northern NJ landscape. “With a brush in my hand I imagine birds with goggles and scarfs perched in tree tops. I have shy fox neighbors that regularly pass through my backyard. These swift and cunning animals are becoming my new muse. Much of my inspiration comes from my own backyard, I watch birds splutter in the bird bath and chipmunks scurry along rock walls, hiding from my two cats. As John Muir says "Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”

On a windy shore
There lived a small Sanderling
In a yellow coat
