Amanda Adams (she/they) is a multi-disciplinary artist and podcaster based out of Baltimore, MD. She earned her BFA in Photography and Bookmaking from the Maryland Institute College of Art which is where she started Close Call Studio and has been exploring new ways of creating art ever since. She spends time outside the studio caring for her ever-growing plant collection and garden, being overly affectionate to her reluctant shop cat Brussels Sprout, and usually reading a handful of books at a time.
Close Call Studio is a fiber art and illustration business started in 2012 that creates work designed to bring playfulness, joy and humor to your home with a focus on nature, compassion, sustainability and mental health. Everything is made by hand from original designs and all materials are recycled/reclaimed (even the felt used is made out of post consumer plastic bottles) and vegan. In 2017 Close Call Studio started donating 10% of all sales to varying non-profits and mutual aids working in environmental issues and sustainability, social justice, animal welfare and community support.
