I graduated from the University of Richmond with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Art in Studio Art. I've also earned a Master's in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine from the University of Southern California. I currently work at a biotech company in San Diego.
Though my life is largely consumed by science, I still enjoy doing art in my spare time (including science art, which can by found on my site www.amandakwieragaart.com). I've been teaching myself how to draw in Photoshop and am continually trying to improve my skills. I'm a huge fan of almost anything fantasy and science fiction - both of which largely inspire my art and current portfolio.
I've recently started participating in Artist Alleys at various local cons, so if you're in the area, please stop by! I would love your feedback on my art and how I can continue to grow and improve in the future.
