Mixed media paintings
My work celebrates the bright, shiny, glittery and joyfulness in everyday life. My subject matter is mostly botanicals and still-lifes, which allows me to continue focusing on experimenting with materials, size and techniques. Through this exploration, I find that there is this moment of being completely enveloped in creativity when everything else falls away and there's a sense of true self and happiness. This is why I love to paint, for these sometimes brief, and fleeting moments. My hope is that the shapes, colors and textures I combine brightens someone's day as much as I enjoy creating them! I've been painting, showing and selling my work since my days as a student at Skidmore College. AMP are my maiden name initials and I started using the name AMPle art while working on my Master's in Interior Design from the Corcoran College of Art + Design. The possible combinations of fine art and design are endless!
