Amanda Ladymon is owner of Ladybug Art Studios, a home-based creative center for art and education, working with local non-profits and the community. Ladymon has been an artist and art educator for 12 years, working with all ages and walks of life within the Columbia community. She was the recipient of the Artist Ventures Initiative Grant in 2013 from the SC Arts Commission, which is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. Ladymon is an Adjunct Professor teaching Sculpture and art studio courses at Benedict College. She received her MFA in Sculpture from the University of South Carolina in 2009. She has a wonderful supportive husband, Eric, and two amazing girls, Lily and Mia.
Ladymon’s most recent work deals with family imagery, local history, womanhood and identity, and the concept of motherhood. Her mixed media works involve a circular dialogue, with one part affecting another, creating an endless flow of biomorphic, organic forms and evolving experimentation with materials. Balancing a tension through visual relationships of form and color, her mixed media pieces are the product of a naturally intuitive, self – organizing principle. Using found objects along with drawing and painting methods, Amanda’s work addresses the importance of upcycling while also addressing the symbolism of home and historical ties to her past and present.
City Art is located at 1224 Lincoln St, Columbia SC 29210.
