Full name

Amanda Saker




Boston, MA


Hi! I'm Amanda and I am a freelance illustrator and a pet portrait artist. My main work combines the natural world with a sense of wonder and the supernatural. My goal is to make the viewer experience what I do when I explore nature and get lost in my surroundings. Working to enrapture the viewer in the dissociative but comforting way I feel has also led me to dabble in animation. I work both traditionally and digitally as an illustrator, using a variety of mediums including acrylic paint, pen and ink, and watercolor. I also have started to create pet portraits. My love pet portraiture stems from my love of animals which has also brought me down the path of working in veterinary medicine. Being able to connect my two worlds of veterinary medicine and illustration has been a dream come true, and I love using my experience with animals to enhance my work. When I'm not saving the animals or painting portraits, I can be found hiking and exploring New England with my dog Amber.
