Amanda Coelho is a contemporary realist painter and graphic designer.
Growing up near Washington, DC, and its world-renowned museums, Coelho was exposed to art, architecture, and design from an early age. While her love for fine arts has informed her work as a graphic designer, she always looked for other ways to express her creativity and began painting in 2018.
Inspired by color, texture, and light, Coelho paints with meticulous attention to detail and a bold, graphic influence. Working from self-composed photographs from everyday life, travel, and whatever else inspires her, she focuses on the details of the subject to capture the quiet and complex beauty in each object.
When she isn’t painting in her home studio, designing, or spending time with her family, Coelho can be found exploring new cities in search of photo-worthy public art and the perfect meal. She lives in Bethesda, Maryland, with her husband and two teenage sons.
