Amanda Lillian Mills : Sunshine(Acid) is a self taught artist currently living in Los Angeles, California. Having grown up in rural wooded Northern Wisconsin after spent a decade living in the city of Milwaukee, they eventually came to the west to seek space to work and create visual art. They have been photographing, styling and directing solo and collaborative work since 2005. Their photography experience ranges from editorial to portraiture + headshots, products, real estate, nature, and fine art. Although, the socially conscious realm is where the real desire to create meaningful work lies within the heart of Sunshine. The name Sunshine(Acid) is an ode to our Mama Cat who always knew she would have a little ray of Sunshine for the world, and our gratitude for the mental expansion that was psychedelically induced from LSD and weed culture, and its liberating effects on the world.
Ecological sustainability is a huge importance when planning projects, and there is a strong focus on second hand and repurposed materials sourcing. We have a desire to work with artists and designers who have the same mindset, and a community building mentality. It is vital to our human survival that we cut excess consumption, and shift our perception of our role on this planet.
