About

Amanda Smith is a production designer, set decorator, and scenic artist whose work tells stories through space, objects, and color.

Amanda’s career started as a scenic artist in Theater.  As a designer and a painter she understands the design process and the practicalities of making a design come to life.  She has worked on set and in scene shops to create work under the pressure of little time and tight budgets.

Working in theater taught Amanda skills like scenic painting, managing crews, and using power tools, but most importantly it taught her the importance of visual storytelling.

Amanda’s film work takes what she learned in theater and puts it through the eye of the camera.  Amanda uses color and composition to tell a story that goes beyond the words of the characters.

Whether it is theater or film, painting or designing, Amanda’s work continues to take stories and interpret them into visual fields that show what the story is really about.
