Amanda and Amilla became fast friends many years ago, as they bonded over their shared love of reading and music. She was born in the suburbs of Seattle where she spent much of her childhood camping and exploring the Pacific Northwest.
Amanda is married to Seattle based artist Nate Leslie (Neotraditional-MOPOP Featured Artist- ‘Body of Work-Tattoo Culture’) and artist at Supergenius Tattoo in Seattle, Washington. Together they are the proud parents of a future tattooer. Having a partner in the industry has given Amanda a unique perspective and appreciation for the tattoo culture. She is an ardent collector of tattoos and passionate consumer of poetry.
