Amanda Lee is the Chamber’s featured artist for the May 2018 Art Walk. Amanda hails from Alexandria, Virginia where she had a busy life as an attorney. But like many of us, Amanda found her way to Colonial Beach and fell in love. Her love for painting was only enhanced by her new, nautical surroundings. Although known by the moniker, “Portrait Painter”, Amanda will bring her watercolors, landscapes and still life art to the May show at the Chamber. Her work has a velvety softness that is enveloping (see “Shell Game”). In addition to painting, Amanda enjoys socializing with family and friends. She can be found at the beach at events like fundraisers, music venues and of course, the Art Walk. Amanda invites you to stop by the Chamber to say hello and to check out her current show.
