Amanda Michele Brown is an abstract artist, living and working in Brooklyn.

Amanda Michele Brown is an Arkansas-born and Wisconsin-raised abstract artist currently living and creating in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn, New York. Her colorful and energetic paintings are experiments in duality, balancing chaos with order to visually mirror the dichotomy of feelings tied to memories. Each piece serves as an echo of the mixed emotions felt when remembering everyday moments. While the moments represented are fleeting, her artwork is a meditation on time, breaking down the memory into structure and flow.
