A little about me... 


My name is Amanda Kay Thompson and my company is named Be The Light.Love. I reside on the west side of Olathe with my husband and three kids. I am an artist who loves to explore new mediums and techniques. My preferred medium is painting but I also enjoy drawing, paper crafting, crafting, metal stamping/jewelry and upcycling furniture and other treasures. In addition to creating art for my home and friends, I love to help others through art classes and events. I am excited to partner with the DeSoto Arts Council to offer classes starting this spring. Looking forward to creating with you soon!
