Amanda Lee Facts
- She stated that she has been drawing essentially all her life.
- She used to hate her name and wished her name was Kylie.
- Because Amanda had to draw every single school day, creating a YouTube channel was an outlet for her and a way to take a break from art.
- After she graduated high school, according to her, she began missing her artistic outlet and slowly transitioned into watercolor painting and figure drawing on her YouTube channel content in early 2017.
- Her goal is to make art more accessible and dispel the illusion that you have to be a top-notch, well-known artist to be successful.
- Amanda also wants to inspire and encourage people to unleash their creativity, no matter what their starting point is.
- On average, it takes Amanda between 3 to 5 hours just to film 1 video, excluding editing, adding effects, and color correcting.
- Amanda has interviewed actors like Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, and Ed Helms.
- She would describe her style as “minimal and contemporary with a bit of an edge.”
- She is self-taught in playing the ukulele and began practicing with the acoustic guitar in early 2019.
- Amanda is glad that her channel didn’t have a ‘viral’ video to skyrocket its following. According to her, the steady growth allowed her to interact with the community that stayed loyal for years.
- One of the DIY projects that she made and still uses to this day is her bed comforter.
- She loves chocolate more than candy and is allergic to nuts.
- In 2014, Amanda took part in her high school fashion show/event, for which she designed and made her own dress.
- She sells her art through a middle-man, a company named Society6 that helps connect artists and creators with their customers.
- When filming, she takes long snack breaks and eats anything in her vicinity. She’s aware it’s not the healthiest choice but is a big lover of munching on food while working.
- Amanda is a teacher on the online, subscription-based learning platform Skillshare. It provided a way for her fanbase to enroll in her art classes and nurture and expand upon their skills.
- Her online pet peeve is creators that leave too much space above their head, which triggers her “compositional OCD.”
- Amanda claimed that she was a sucker for turquoise-colored clothing, and owned and wore a lot of it on a daily basis.
- Her dream is to have a fashion line of her own.
- Her video titled How To: Calligraphy & Hand Lettering for Beginners! Tutorial + Tips! went viral quickly after she uploaded it on June 15, 2017, and has amassed more than 7 million views.
- She collaborated with her fellow YouTube creator Adelaine Morin on a video titled BLINDFOLDED DRAWING CHALLENGE! on July 21, 2018.
- Amanda reached a milestone of 1 million YouTube subscribers on October 15, 2018.
- One of the biggest struggles with being a one-man team and YouTube creator for Amanda is that her couch and Netflix streaming is a few steps away. The only solution to that problem she found was strict journaling and scheduling of her time.
- She has a plan of expanding her content to include subscription-based content on Patreon. That way, she can be even closer to her audience, create more content, and fulfill some of their custom art requests.
