OWNER // AMANDA STONE TALLEY ART
Amanda Stone Talley was raised in Louisiana before leaving to earn a BA from Mary Baldwin College and an MFA from SCAD in painting. She returned to her home state in 2000, settling in historic New Orleans where she continues to work from her studio gallery. Taking many forms, whether drawing, painting, or creating light boxes, Amanda’s work is uniquely identifiable. Her process is all about about the movement and energy in the moment of painting; her style is abstract-expressionistic in nature, but figure and form frequently emerge from the reverberating compositions.
