About Amanda Turner

I was a resident artist at The Loft Gallery & Studios, San Pedro, CA until Covid-19 lock down. I have been working as an artist since before graduating high school, but my love of fine art painting began in 1991 at Long Road College, Cambridge, UK, under the direction of painter Andy Crocker, my inspiration.

I currently work as an artist & designer creating design, concept art, animation, illustration and art commissions for clients across industries to include: Kids, Toys & Collectibles, Food, Health, Music & Entertainment. A regular at Comic-con San Diego, I'm a known painter in the collectible toy industry. Check out my day work here: http://www.pintsizeart.com

My fine art is the result of personal expression otherwise neglected when producing more directed works for my industry clients.
