Amanda has been painting people for about 20 years. She started out as a clown in Pittsburgh, but after moving to Chicago in 1996, she focused on face and body painting. When started getting more calls for face painting than she could handle, she enlisted the help of friends to paint faces, make balloon animals, draw caricatures, and more.
Fine Point Productions was established by Amanda in 1998 as an event planning company, but she now focuses mostly on face painting and fortune telling. She is a graduate of the Second City Conservatory and a few other improv programs in Chicago. She has produced several conventions and theatrical events, including ALCON: The Weird Al Yankovic Fan Convention; The Improv Challenge, a competitive improv show; Sharko Bizarre's Gong Show; and Playing With Matches, the Improv Singles Party. With the talent available from some of Chicago's finest performers, Fine Point Productions offers entertainment for events of all sizes.
She comes from a family of artists. Her mother is a painter and co-manages a gallery, and her father and brother work together in a pottery studio.
In her spare time she is a Powerpoint specialist and enjoys scuba diving and performing stand-up comedy.
