About Me

Background

Amanda Coburn

Amanda Coburn is a teaching artist in central Maine for over 10 years. She is the co-owner of Maine Jewelry & Art Gallery and Studios on Harlow Street in Bangor Maine where she sells her work and teaches workshops year round.

My Medium

As a primarily self taught metalsmith and jeweler, my career began with sterling silver and gemstones. Although they'll always be my first love, I've begun incorporating gold, platinum, and vitreous enamel into my jewelry work. 


My traditional visual art uses several media, sometimes used in one piece. I love alcohol ink, pen and ink, pastels, acrylics, and more. Mixed media sculpture also really excites me! 

My Inspiration

Growing up, I excelled in Math and Science. I always enjoyed the arts, but was encouraged to pursue only academic courses. It wasn't until I reached adulthood that I realized I craved creativity. 


I now find that much of my inspiration comes from my early years. I'm still fascinated with geometry, biology, chemistry, anatomy and human physiology, and astronomy. You may be able to find that influence in my work.
