When a 20's-something,open-eyed young woman strolled into The Art Studio NY one year ago, I would have never guessed how her life would transform. One New York City summer later, art has changed Amanda's life in ways she could not have imagined.

Recently, I sat down with renowned journalist for The Huffington Post, Laura Cococcia. Laura had the courage to reignite her artistic flame through art classes at The Art Studio NY after not having picked up a paintbrush in, well, a long time. She then picked my brain, ART and soul, and her interview with me is published in The Huffington Post (and for your convenience, you may scroll down and have a read right here!). I was surprised at how long it took me to respond to her questions about my life as an artist and Founder of The Art Studio NY (she sent them in January, I responded in May!). Clearly, it was time for me to reassess why I do what I do, why art continues to be a driving factor in my life, and what really inspires me, and challenges me, today. I needed time to turn off my artistic autopilot to do some creative soul searching of my own.

I must confess, I love throwing things away. The physical and emotional act of letting go floods my body with a giddy sensation of freedom and weightlessness that is a true delight! On the contrary, the sight of endless emails in my inbox pumps anxiety through my veins, and an overload of physical objects, papers and tchotchkies just make me plain dizzy. As my dear mother would say, "Why do you need that? It's just going to collect dust. Get rid of it!" I couldn't agree more. At this stage of my life, I realize that the "things" I need the most are within me, right inside of my heART. That's where I store my most valuable treasures.

I've lost count as to how many times I've witnessed this exact sequence of ever-changing emotional terrain in my New York art studioAnd now that I got your attention by using the word fuck, insert the word "life" for the word "painting". "I love my life, I hate my life, I fucked up my life. What should I do now with my life?!?! HELP."
