Amanda Buckner, of Amanda’s Glass Art, will be the featured artist at Viking Construction.
Shortly after graduating West Virginia State University in 2002 she began working at the Avampato Discovery Museum in the Clay Center where she met Martina Huson, a veteran stained glass artist who offered to train Amanda in stained glass artistry. Amanda began working for Martina's Glass Studio in 2004 and discovered her love for stained glass. "I have been an artist all of my life working with many art mediums. Stained glass is one medium that I never used until I met Martina. I quickly learned that glass is the most versatile art medium I have ever come across. Once I discovered this, I never looked back."
In 2006 Amanda Buckner became a sole proprietor and began selling her own custom stained glass to Tamarack and private residents.
