We’ll talk to local artist, Amanda Varney about the growing arts scene in Old Town Rock Hill.
After growing up as an aesthetically sensitive kid in the mountains, Amanda moved with her family to Rock Hill in the mid 90s. She attended Queens University in Charlotte and has since done all kinds of jobs from reading with children to making mixed tapes for huge national businesses. She has worked with regional film festivals and had art pieces in shows around the area. Along with a new interest in coding, she’s plotting out a creative professional path and wading into the world of freelance writing with Charlotte Five. She also enjoys vegetarian food, hanging out with dogs, and trying to keep her backyard garden alive.
