Amanda Reilly is a New York based creative.

As an image-maker and creative force within the New York area, Amanda's philosophy that surrounds the work she creates is about completely embracing the bold, bizarre and grotesque. A colorist and lover of twisted imagery. Her skills range from illustration, large scale mural painting, graphic design, and embroidery. She also is an on-location artist that derives inspiration by traveling to various cabaret, burlesque and sideshows, drawing the performers live. Former Director and co-creator of Sideshow Sketch Night, who’s mission is to merge the boisterous and colorful world of the NYC sideshow and cabaret scene with the young growing art scene of Long Island. Holding various themed costumed live drawing events throughout Long Island, NY.
