Amelie Mancini is a French-born painter and printmaker. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Amelie moved to New York in 2006 and didn't know what a curveball was until a couple of friends took her to Shea Stadium one evening of 2007. The Mets lost that night to the Phillies, but Amelie fell hard for America's national pastime, becoming increasingly obsessed with the game and eventually making it one of the center themes of her work.

Fascinated by baseball cards, she decided to print her own and started Left Field Cards in 2011. Left Field Cards grew quickly into something bigger and now offers apparel and wall art. Amelie's baseball paintings were used by the Baseball Project for the covers of two of their albums.

Amelie is a dedicated Mets fan and her favorite player is Harvey Haddix.
