Amanda Adams (cuz it’s just me here) 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 caring for her ever-growing plant collection, being overly affectionate to her reluctant shop cat Brussels Sprout, and collecting books faster than she can read them. She is recognized primarily as "the peddler of plants that can’t be killed" but she is always looking for new ways to make her ideas come to life.
Close Call Studio is a fiber art and illustration brand started in 2012 that creates work designed to bring playfulness, joy, and humor to your home with a focus on compassion, sustainability, and ethical business practices. All materials are consciously curated and are entirely recycled/reclaimed (even the felt used is made out of post consumer plastic bottles), vegan, and fair trade or US made. In 2017 Close Call Studio started donating 10% of all sales to varying non-profits and charities working in environmental issues and sustainability, social justice, and animal welfare. So here’s to having a beautiful space decorated with kindness and compassion!
