Amanda Caldwell was born in, in Spokane, WA. Growing up as one of the lower-middle class, without having a car or cell phone; Amanda quickly learned how to navigate the city's public transportation and communications systems to get where she needed to go. Using these, she passed through the public education system and on to higher education at Spokane Falls Community College. Amanda studied in many different areas; inclined toward life sciences and evolutionary psychology, she began to show interest in observing psychological and spatial interpretations of reality in different public places and its connection to how people behave and interact with their environment.
Through working with many experimental and traditional mixed media processes Amanda Caldwell describes herself as a multi-media artist who uses pictorial and intuitive geometric abstraction to create a quirky and expressively unique language. Her works are constructs built of urban and rural environments that consider an interpretation of memory formation with regards to individualized spatial and emotional distortions of spaces in time. Caldwell, has since exhibited her work during Eastern Washington University’s Creative Works Symposium, the Red Tie GALA at the Davenport Grand Hotel, and at Art Seed Spokane, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening Spokane’s art community. Caldwell's work has shown at the Cheney Student Gallery, the 2018 Pop Up Show at Emerge, in Coeur d’Alene ID and was published in the Spokesman Review's cover of Terrain 11 "Finishing the Puzzle", a one-night show held yearly, to showcase the emerging artists in the area. Caldwell received multiple scholarships, including the 2012-2017 College Bound Scholarship and the 2017 Hyde Scholarship for full time art students. In 2018, Caldwell earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art at Eastern Washington University with honors, Cum Laude. Caldwell, was a speaker at EWU First Step orientations for the College of Arts, Letters, and Education, and a volunteer member of Art Seed Spokane’s gallery preparatory and curating team from 2016-2018. She is now turning her attention to the goal of furthering her skills through the next level of education, and being more involved in the community of her hometown and abroad.
