ARTZY DOODLE BACKSTORY

One day I sat down to draw Albert Einstein and found myself with a pen in hand instead of my usual graphite pencil. As I looked at his kind eyes and crazy hair and eyebrows, I decided to try something different. I used the pen to create his portrait using small concentric circles. The end result was fun and whimsical, and I have since “artzy-doodled” Barack Obama, Bruce Springsteen, Garth Brooks, Will Rogers, and Gene Wilder.

 

LYRICAL PORTRAIT BACKSTORY

After I saw the play “Hamilton” in New York City, I became obsessed with the music and the clever lyrics of all the songs. I decided to create a portrait of Lin-Manuel Miranda (playwright and composer of Hamilton), and wanted to take an equally creative approach by creating the portrait entirely out of the titles of the songs from the play.  I also recently created a Lyrical Portrait of legendary rock star Bruce Springsteen.

“No matter the canvas, Amy captures an emotional spirt that lifts your soul and is joyfully satisfying!”

“Amy knows how much my family is OBSESSED with everything Star Wars so naturally when she created her Star Wars series of coffee art, I absolutely needed it in my life. When it arrived in the mail, my incredibly nerdy husband proceeded to geek out and started talking about getting it framed for his office at work. Silly boy, I let him know that if wanted to stay married that it was staying in our Star Wars room at home (yes, this exists). Thanks Amy for sharing your incredible talent!”

Kim Wagner

“I've been fortunate to know Amy for several years and have had the opportunity to watch her business and artistic talent bloom and grow. As the proud owner of Amy's art I can tell you that her sketch of our son for his high school graduation is a family heirloom that will be treasured forever. Amy beautifully captured his handsome face and the mischief in his eyes. I have seen her work and In paint, pencil and coffee among other things, and she brings a genuine love and care of each subject to each project. Best of luck Amy on your continued success. I am thrilled to call you my friend and artistic mentor!”

MK Edwards

“Amy did a drawing of my grandson. She's an expert at capturing expression. I love the drawing even more than the photo. It's my absolute favorite piece of art hanging on my wall. Amy is a super talented artist. Beautiful work. Thank you.”

Shari Umsheid

“Amy took a photo of my one year old, Sophia, at a party. She then did a drawing from the photo that captured Sophia's expression exactly, including each strand of hair. It was remarkable!”

Wendy Brochetti

“Thank you for the lovely and well-done portrait! I have admired your portraits of Virginia Johnson and Father Jewitt, and never thought I’d live to see my own. But now I have, and can die happy! Thank you for all the hours you must have spent on this. I am truly humbled, but at the same time proud of this best portrait of me ever.”

Msgr. Gaalaas

“I want you to know that your portrait of my sister means the world to me. I love it so much.”

Kim

“Thank you for sharing your gift of drawing with me. Thank you for taking the time to “bring to life” a piece of my dad. I was unprepared for the rush of raw emotion when I “saw my dad.” Your drawing is so real. I wish I could have the rest of him here with me too.”
