Amanda Griffey Family

Farm Girl, Wife, and Mother

Amanda Griffey grew up in a small, rural Indiana town, spending most of her time on her grandparents’ farms; her mother’s parents dairy farm, and her father’s parents hog farm. She witnessed first-hand both the hardships and blessings of the farm lifestyle. However being raised in a family of faith, she saw even the hardships as blessing and a way to live out the verses Romans 5:3-5 “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”

These hardships and blessings are what inspires her art. A beautiful sunrise or sunset, the hope of  harvest, a timely rain, the weathering that years of work and perservenacne create on both man and machine, and children following in their fathers footsteps carrying on the legacy and traditions of farming. Amanda brings an authenticity to her work that can only be found by someone who lives, and loves, this way of life.

Amanda currently works and resides just minutes from where she grew up, farming with her husband Thomas and his family, along with their sons Joseph and Joshua.
