Learn about the lives and inspirations of our local artists
Contemporary painter and sculptor Léni Paquet-Morante looks to the landscape for inspiration and finds beauty and intrigue in its intricate structures as well as its sweeping vistas. More and more, she is drawn to the water, particularly shallow water—creeks, puddles, wetlands—mesmerized by its layers and movement.
Amanda’s paintings often feature beautiful natural settings, captured and interpreted in bright, bold colors, in places that have special meaning to her, like the fields surrounding her family’s farm in Ottsville, Pa. And, of course, the Phillips Mill itself, a setting she has drawn and painted often.
The Phillips' Mill Community Association supports programming in the visual and performing arts, and hosts social and educational events. It is the broadest-ranging venue for artistic expression in Bucks County.
