Nature is the primordial art form that awakens aesthetic inspiration and wonder. In Nature we can experience the “fabric” of life through our full senses and the interconnectedness of all its parts. Nurturing our relationship with nature provides an endless source of balance and artistic inspiration.
Amy paints wild flowers, idyllic nature and its expressive disorder in movement. Her way of painting is in an impressionist fashion with free access to imagination, to improvisation and to fantasy. Each canvas is as much a result of randomness, as it is a product of planned brush strokes and striates of colors and washes. This is how it ends up acquiring its unique soul. It is a landscape upon which you can rest and let your imagination run freely.
