I'm an artist.


Always have been. Creativity is my modus operandi and I'm drawn to express it in many ways.



I guess I'm "multidisciplinary with a focus on drawing, painting, performance, and photographic process" (who also wants to be a printmaker and a sculptor) hahaaaa. The juggle is real!


What ties it all together is a very simple love of character and drama (not surprising as an actor).


You can see the fruits of my multidisciplinary practice at my main website www.amandabilling.co.nz.

I sell apparel and original artwork and write occasionally about what it's like to work - to thrive - as an artist.


I also have a Patreon - another project, launched on the 1st of July 2023. I'll do it for a year and see what happens.


My studio is where it all happens but I can also come to you.

It's relaxed so you can be too. Let's hang.

100 days

HOW THIS PHOTO THING STARTED:

In 2016, I picked up a camera to complete a 100 day project focused solely on photographing humans. I called it #intomeandsee. What began as a project to kickstart creativity through connection is now my job.

01.


Fact 1


Even though I have lived in Auckland for twenty years, I always say I'm from Masterton.

02.


Fact 2


I took my first intomeandsee-style pics in 1988 with a disposable film camera on my last day of intermediate school. I wanted to remember my teachers. It was a grey day. The pics were all very dark.

I got discouraged.

Yet here I am.

03.


Fact 3


I'm an actor.

I have been working consistently on telly and on stage since 2003.

I know stuff about connection and authenticity.


My comic timing isn't bad either - have you seen KID SISTER?

Watch it here.

04.


Fact 4


I'm a visual artist. I draw and paint from the figure and love discovering new things about colour.
