Amanda Walters is a visual artist and writer originally from tropical Florida and obsessed with feathers. She is a dual degree candidate at CCA pursuing her MFA in Studio Practice and an MA in Visual & Critical Studies. She earned her BFA with emphasis in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2009. Before relocating to the Bay Area, Amanda lived and worked in Chicago for some time, where she made art, worked as an archivist, and collected plants. After moving to the Bay Area and even further from Florida, she became acutely aware of how bizarre her home state is, and has not stopped thinking about it since.
