Amanda Phelps Burns Amazing Animal Portraits In Wood

Self-taught artist Amanda Phelps creates wood burned and water color painted artwork. Amanda grew up in California, near the Sierra Nevada Mountains and currently works in South Dakota. In 2016, she decided to try pyrography at the suggestion received from someone she's close to. 

Under the brand name Phelps Pyrography she offers hand-drawn animal sketches on wood using a ball-point tip wire that heats up. She mainly works with basswood and birchwood to create small and large pieces. She makes ornaments, fridge magnets and wall decor art pieces, each one takes hours to complete depending on its size and details. 


Her animal portraits range from butterflies to deer, to sea turtles, to polar bears, but her all time favorite are owls. She loves to bring in color to her rustic pieces using watercolors and colored pencils to create amazing work. You can view more creations by her on Instagram and find her available pieces in her online store.
