Designer : About Me Page

I'm not a strong writer and have struggled with about page for as long as I've had a website. I find it difficult to articulate what I do and what I offer (aside from the obvious).

Any help would be appreciated. Here's what I have so far:

...

I’m Amanda Weedmark; Shop owner, graphic designer, and digital illustrator based in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I’ve been a professional graphic designer for over 15 years but have been creating my whole life.

As a young, shy kid, art became a meaningful way of expressing my ideas, thoughts, and feelings. This remained as an adult and eventually, turned into a design career.

Taking that desire for expression, an affection for great design, and a deep passion for nostalgia, I started a business. One that would offer stand out designs on high quality product so my customers can be a little different and find their own unique way of expression.

You can find my goods on my website, on Etsy, at local markets, and at 40+ brick and mortar shops across North America, including MEC and REI, thanks to a license deal I signed with Dust City Wood Stickers in 2018.

To bring my designs to life, I work with small manufacturers or family-run businesses in North America and Europe that have a high standard of quality and value ethical production.

When I’m not designing, you can find me adventuring with my rescue dog Kya, or travelling to new places near and far. Currently on my bucket list is Highclere Castle since Downton Abbey is one of my favourite shows and Barkerville, BC because I love “old timey” things and places.
