My Bio
Amanda Zito was born and raised in Western Montana and spent her childhood on her family’s ranch, surrounded by the majestic Rocky Mountains. Like any wild child, she spent her early years running around butt naked. Her body of work clearly reflects her rural upbringing and down-to-earth attitude by utilizing warm color palettes, natural elements and embracing the nude. Her portrayal of women can be described as glorified, powerful and sexy. She makes use of her romantic-realist style to explore themes and feelings of nostalgia, western history, relationships and classic portraiture. Her work is digitally painted, highly rendered, and detail oriented.

She moved to Portland, Oregon in 2010 to attend the Pacific Northwest College of Art where she Graduated with a BFA in Illustration in May 2014. She spends her free time driving as far away from the city as humanly possible and pining for home.

In a few days, it is going to be a relatively normal day...for most.  But not for you.  For on that day...it will be a good day to revel in the moment that you were cast down upon this Earth, summoned and placed here by the mighty Odin to share your talents and your creativity with all.  Let thee rejoice and enjoy this time, and know you are wished a Happy Birthday!  May many more follow!

Also, Odin sends cake, blessed by King Kong and delivered by Godzilla! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
<3 Thank you ! :3 
History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
