Amanda Di Genova (NOVA)




Currently based in Montréal, QC. 

I am an illustrator, designer and screenprinter.
I have over 10 years of experience in the print/design field.
I run a studio and clothing brand named "Elektrek".

Random Facts:
My biggest admirer is my quintessential pug, Mac.
If I could go back in time and meet anyone it would be Frida Kahlo and Andy Warhol's pug.
