Amanda Outcault describes her artworks as showing the changing roles of women. She says that some of her work describes finding something magical in the ordinary tasks. One of the elements of her paintings are the use of goldfish as a symbol. Outcault says they can show both the meanings of abundance and happiness, but also of domestication and entrapment in small spaces. She is inspired by life and her environment.
