Amelia Boon is originally from Auckland, New Zealand. She loves drawing people, animals and nature – most especially clouds and water. Her fascination with movement, which extends to dancing salsa, probably has something to do with it! She earned a BFA in Illustration from California State University, Long Beach and also studied abroad at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts.

Amelia is currently residing in Tempe, Arizona, working on a children’s book involving a cat and dog. She will be performing in Artwalk Ventura on July 18, 2015, providing live digital illustration for a music and dance production strong.mng.
