Note from Camilla:
I call myself a creationalist and define myself as undeniably human and capable of many things. No, the word (creationalist) is not in the dictionary, but if we use it enough, it will be added.
I would like to answer the question for a few followers that may be wondering . . . Why the name Amanyia? (Ah-Man-Yah) and the transition back to using your real name.
The reason I chose that creative name Amanyia is; in the industry you could use a pseudonym name; it was different and kept those curious tongues active. Not that I wanted to be incognito; it was a conversation piece.
Although I have transitioned back to using my birth name Camilla; and thought it would be easier to pronounce; people continue to pronounce it wrongly too. I don't get offended; I answer to them all.
The young say, woman you’re too old to be performing. Well one thing I can say about me is; I'm a humble Indie Artist making my way through a jungle of amazement! I’m never too old to enjoy being creative, writing songs or making sounds. And, I am also a YouTube performer.
Presently I am working in my home studio, writing, recording and collaborating on other recording projects.
Reward & Appreciation
My reward is sharing my creative works with others, in hope they too become inspired by their creativity.
I embrace and enjoy collaborating with other artist, photographers, singers, songwriters and thespians.
I greatly appreciate family, friends, and followers for all their support, and the willing subjects in, Enjoy the Moments video snippets projects and
only to make you smile, animated projects.
The pleasure has been exceptional, working with some very talented individuals in the art and entertainment world, and I hope to work with many more. You make my purpose all the more special!
"Low key and excited about most things creative;
the entire world inspires me".
