A native of the Buffalo, New York area, Amanda Maciuba graduated from the University at Buffalo in 2009 with a degree in Visual Studies-Print Media.  She has shown her work in the Buffalo area at the Carnegie Art Center, The Western NY Book Arts Collaborative, the UB Art Gallery in the Center for the Arts, and other local venues. An active participant in the Buffalo arts community, she is a founding member of Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo, a local chapter of the Americans for the Arts Emerging Leaders network and part of the planning committee for Painting for Preservation, Buffalo.  Amanda is currently pursuing her Masters of Fine Arts in Printmaking at the University of Iowa along with a graduate certificate of the book.

Amanda writes, "As an artist my work is concerned with local communities, how they develop, and reasons why they are sustainable or not.  I often study the architecture of suburban homes and city planning, its successes and downfalls and how this impacts the individual people choosing to live in a particular community.  My work takes physical form in the traditional fine art mediums of printmaking, papermaking, drawing, and bookmaking.  I use these traditional art methods to illustrate the developments and destruction of communities over time and start a discussion about how art can inspire those who have control over these processes to do so in a more sustainable manner, keeping in mind both the needs of the community, and the environment surrounding."
