Amanda Palmer is a USA born singer-songwriter and performance artist. She describes her life experience in the book “The art of asking”.

If there is one thing that is important for the natury website, it is: Trust! Amanda illustrates this during a lecture with a photo taken during one of her concerts: She stands in the nude amongst her fans, handing out markers – pens for writing and painting on whiteboards – and invites them to write and paint on her body.

Two other works – “The Bed Song” and her satirical commentary on BREXIT “THE FRENCH BREXIT SONG” – illustrate the range of artistic interests in Amanda's work.
