Amy studied at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, receiving her BA in Communication Arts. She now lives in Midlothian with her husband, Mark and family. She paints full-time both on location and in her home studio. While subject matter can vary, she is drawn to paint the light as it interacts with nature. Her artwork often includes a hint of man-made structures settled among the natural world – a house, a figure, even a pathway. This combination between man and natural world are shown throughout her latest works, which can be viewed on our most recent exhibition, Colors of Home. Amy’s paintings attempt to depict both man and land as equally subject to the effects of the sun’s light and earth’s atmosphere.
"Everywhere I travel scenes beg to be painted. Light and vivid color captivate me. Of course God creates the most vibrant and dynamic colors and patterns-even so, I enjoy paying homage to His designs by rendering 2D versions of what I see. I love to paint the details of what I see: the contrasts in the lights and darks and the vibrancy of the world."
