Amanda Immurs – Custom Portrait Artist

September 24, 2016 2:47 pm

We spent some time getting to know Amanda Immurs. She has been in business since 2012. Amanda is a visual artist and her residential and commercial painting along with her custom portrait work keeps her days busy. She comes by this remarkable talent quite innocently as her mom was an interior decorator and an artist herself. We think it’s amazing that her inspiration came from right inside her home! Do you hate painting and want your home to look a little differently? Amanda’s faux finishing work is incredible and she paints anything. What does it mean to be the sole proprietor or your business? It means allot of hard work, diligence and dedication but Amanda has all that in spades – she has a love for her community and her smile and laughter is contagious.

So a little more about her business: Amanda offers many different faux finishing techniques; glazing, Venetian plaster, metallic, antiquing, wood graining and murals. But, as much as she loves those things, working on children’s rooms are still her favourite projects. “There’s much more creative spirit and license in a child’s room” she says. Here is her Facebook cover photo – proof that children must really be her best medicine and her biggest inspiration! Love it!

While knowing about their business is fun, it’s also fun to get to know our clients more personally, so a rapid fire q and a session seemed like a way to get that done:
