About the Artist //
As a fine artist, Amandalynn is inspired by the female form and spirit. She is passionate about her illustrative depictions of strong, seductive women, capturing an alluring invitation to each viewer through strong line work and decorative patterning. Amandalynn shows her artwork extensively throughout the world. Additionally, she is continually invited to create murals throughout the world. Amandalynn has welcomed a huge fan base through being the art director for Kaaboo Music and Art Festival. Her artworks and murals appeared throughout the festival’s initial launch in Del Mar in 2015 and will again be featured in 2016 in Del Mar and additional upcoming festivals. The exposure has helped Amandalynn to further develop a strong collecting base.

About the Gallery //
Distinction Gallery was created in 2004 to give beginning and established collectors a venue to purchase high-quality, artwork created by highly skilled artists. Distinction has hosted over 130 exhibitions since its inception featuring mid-career and professional artists. The primary genres forwarded at Distinction are Contemporary Realism, Surrealism and Urban art with a focus on the figure. Our primary media focus is original oil and acrylic paintings; however, we occasionally display drawings and mixed media. Distinction’s artwork is available for purchase online to clients around the world and most of our artists are available for commissions. Please feel free to contact us with questions.
In order to further expand our offerings to our community, we converted part of our 7,0000 arts complex to ArtHatch, a non profit organization, in 2011. ArtHatch rents exhibition and studio space to emerging artists as well as offers a free teen program. Additionally we have two escape rooms and an Art Bar (Last Spot) within our building.
