              ARTIST BIO


Amanda Cappelli is an artist living and working in Philadelphia, PA.  She works with both oils and acrylics and creates large scale pieces with saturated color to express intense emotions and personal struggle.  She enjoys working with children and has taught art at the Woodlynde School Summer Camp in Strafford, PA.  Amanda has recently graduated from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. and is currently working in her studio to continue her work related to the Expression of Struggle and Frustration.

  Expression of Struggle and Frustration

My work focuses on the expression of struggle and frustration.  My paintings are acrylic, oil on canvas or panels and are a combination of representation and abstraction.   I use large scale canvases to make a more powerful statement.  In my work, color expresses the emotions of defeat and elation that come with striving to communicate.  These emotional poles may occur separately or together.  I use my work to bring attention to these intense feelings that go along with the ups and downs that many of us feel in our lives for a variety of different reasons.
