Amanda Krolczyk interview
What inspires you to keep making things?
"This unquenchable desire to keep learning burning in my chest."
What one piece of advice would you give to other makers?
"Never feel like you have to stick to just one thing. Explore new ways of making/thinking/seeing, always. Keep your mind fresh and that will reflect in your work."
