    Presenting the beautiful background art of Amanda Winterstein. A graduate of California Institute of the Arts, more informal known as CalArts. She cut her teeth at animation studio Divide Nine before going on to become a designer for late-night Fox animated series Friends Night ADHD. Winterstein has now found a home at Cartoon Network working as a background painter on their popular series Steven Universe.

    Winterstein’s work for both Steven Universe and much of her previous work use soft pastel tones to great effect. Harmonising colours to create relaxed airy environments. Her paintings often mimic watercolours which help add to their calming appeal.
