"Amanda Markel’s work is special . Her artistic expression is highly relational in unexpected ways. To build so much of a story within such a small sculpture is truly a delight to the eyes and mind. In metal, a medium with great staying power, she conveys the interconnectedness of the world and the ones who inhabit it. At a glance, her work is lovely, the beauty can be appreciated swiftly and easily. However, upon closer inspection, the depth of her work reveals a power that is striking. Markel has managed to create art that allows a viewer to go deeper if they so choose. She gives her audience a gentle invitation rather than a hard, obvious confrontation."

"Amanda’s art path is impressively laced with deep understanding and talent at a young age. I am very touched by the story Mountain Heart which connects pain with growth."
