Amanda Mulcahy

Amanda Mulcahy is a multidisciplinary artist and educator. She is guided by her desire to understand how natural processes unfold, and how our daily lives get embedded into these systems. Inspired by her young children’s drawing and storytelling, Amanda has recently been exploring how we use mark making to make sense of the world around us and to record memories. Her work distills these interactions and playfully translates them into colorful abstractions in painting, collage, and fiber art. She holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She teaches at Evanston Art Center and Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago.
