Amy Aramanda was born and raised in Reno and graduated with her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nevada, Reno. Coming from a family of artists, she never pictured anything else for her life. Although she works with many mediums, her lack of patience for painting led her to study photography as her emphasis. Although her work has changed after a brief hiatus from art making, she still remains true to her desire to explore the relationship between mediums.
