Artist Statement

I am a contemporary artist pursuing my passion in the US but have participated in both local and international exhibitions. Inspired by my grandmother, I have been painting since childhood. This included my bedroom wall which was a remembered but short-lived masterpiece. Working with different mediums, I fancy bold vibrant paint colors, yet appreciate the many shades and details of a simple pencil. Nature moves me and people inspire me. I love sunsets, each night offers its own unique palette. Much like our ever changing moods, some nights are vibrant & bright, and some nights are somber & calm. In a dark moment, laughter is thought to be the best medicine, so sometimes adding humor to my artwork feels therapeutic in a way. We all seek balance and life is never what we anticipate. Dodging life's punches isn't always an easy task. Sometimes head on is the only option, forcing an internal review, and release of emotional creativity. Each chapter of my journey seems to open a new opportunity. The ebbs and flows create a beautiful learning experience and an exciting adventure. - Amy‚Äč
