While traveling with her husband, Doug Painter, the couple are always on the look-out for interesting photographic opportunities.
In 2011 the couple began traveling in a motorhome, which was a new and enjoyable experience. They met new and interesting people in RV Parks, they discovered photographic opportunities in new and off-the-beaten path locations, and they were exposed to a new way of life on the road. In the fall of 2012 the couple explored a few locations in Texas, then tragedy hit when Doug came down ill. He spent close to three months, in three different hospitals in the Houston area. Life instantly changed.
As of April, 2013, the couple has been based in the Phoenix area. In late 2014, Amelia began exploring and learning more about the American Southwest. Watch for new prints as she slowly ventures out explores the landscapes of Arizona.
