About | Amanda Ballengee
“Early in life, I discovered the lord had blessed me with an interest and patience for working with art. Being so influenced by a personal love of nature and the wilderness, art soon became a way of journaling my days outdoors. After studying graphic design and visual arts, I set out to creatively work with a variety of clients in an effort to create iconic images that preserve our traditions and the companionship of our gun dogs.”
