Amanda is a mother of four wonderful daughters, six animals and lives with her ever-increasing brood in a conservation area in the heart of Whitefield!
Born into the world of art (Her mother was an artist and owned a large, successful art studio in Manchester City Centre) she was surrounded by creativity and started out winning drawing competitions as a child, then going on to sell several pieces to galleries and achieving local exhibitions for her art and pottery. Before motherhood, she ran a shop in Manchester for several years, which tested her skills as a seamstress. In her (virtually non-existent!) spare time she makes all manner of craft and pottery and tends to her garden.
