Amanda Burns-Elhassouni

My passion is to portray

people, places and experiences through

painting, drawing and mixed media. I desire to connect with my audience by capturing the essence of what I am painting or drawing. 


My work over the years is a range of materials and subject matter mostly figurative with pattern, texture, and unique styling all being highlights in creating a narrative. Currently, I am focused on a new body of work taken from my photographs of travels to places such as Morocco and Florida. My inspiration is a mixture of everyday life, interesting patterns, color, light, and shadow. 


"With my unique ability to capture moments, people and places, I will make your memories

a masterpiece!"


There are special moments we relish in life. Is yours your wedding day? Where you got engaged? A great expression from your child in a photograph that captures their essence? An amazing trip to somewhere special?

I will make a uniquely personal artwork of your most precious memory. 






Each of my clients is special to me. I pride myself in making sure that you will not only be thrilled with the artwork but the experience as a whole. They say you are only as good as your client's happiness, so here are some testimonials to provide you with their thoughts and experiences. 

"I was very fortunate to come across Amanda. Her name was given to me by another artist who recommended her for a project I was looking to have done. I have used Amanda on a total of 3 different art pieces. All have been jaw dropping amazing and simply perfection. She is so easy to work with. She has painted portraits of family and has made their memory shine through her work. I could go on and on about her amazing talent. I was truly blessed to have found her and plan to continue to use her artistic talents later on in the future. Again, I could go on and on with how amazing she is!"

"Its always such a pleasure to work with someone who is truly passionate about what they do. Amanda is one of those people. Her passion shines through in her artwork. She really takes the time to ensure the client walks away with a lasting memory. 
Every time I look at the painting of my father in laws boat, I am taken back to moments in time that truly just make me smile! Thank you Amanda for sharing your talents with all of us! xo

"I had a great experience working with Amanda. We moved to CT from South Orange and I wanted a painting of the pond as a memory for our new house. I commissioned Amanda to do this based on the recommendation of other local families. She was so easy to work with!
Amanda kept in touch with me during the whole process to make sure the painting was exactly what I wanted. It couldn't be more beautiful and our whole family smiles when we look at it. I highly recommend Amanda for anyone looking to commission a painting."
