It all started when I started to draw horses at age 2...

...and then all else went down hill from there!

Well not so much.

My name is Amanda Putnam. I am an aspiring Young Adult/Middlegrade Children's Book illustrator and Educator. I obtained a MFA in Children's Book Illustration from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. I reside in my hometown of Springfield, MA with my husband, painting, drawing, teaching, and working where Grumbacher materials are made. Mainly, I work in watercolor, pen and ink, with the occasional pastel and other drawing mediums.

Actively seeking agents, publishers, and authors to work with.
