Creating the beauty that surrounds me...
Hello! My name is Amy Douglas.
I am an artist passionate about modern abstract art.
My art styles vary from bold statement pieces to delicate, earth-toned, neutral, and minimalistic art.
I love to be challenged, experiment, and push boundaries!
With modern abstract art, there is always something exciting and new! The endless colors, tools, and techniques are always a fun challenge. The learning process seems unending!
I am in LOVE with the natural world that surrounds us! Traveling, waterfalls, oceans, mountains, exploring, and adventure are some of my favorite things. Thoughtfully, I bring these elements into my modern abstract art using colors, texture, mark-making, and many other techniques to create moods, interest, and depth.
By the use of color choices, I can create feelings such as nostalgia, serenity, or even excitement. A special technique that I love is placing newspaper, poems, excerpts, or prints into an abstract painting to create a unique, one-of-a-kind composition. Sometimes, only those who take the time to look more closely will find these hidden gems.
Learning as an artist has added value to my life, and I love having the opportunity to share my experiences. My hopes are that something I say or demonstrate will spark creativity and curiosity in you!
on a more personal note...
When I'm not covered "in Studio" you'll find me...
Living my happily-ever-after in a small-town oasis, Smithville, Texas... only minutes from Austin.
I am a wife and mother to two wonderful kiddos. My family and I live on a ranch with an expanse of blue skies and plenty of room to breathe and explore. We love animals and have two dogs, a curious kitten, a bearded dragon lizard, cattle, chickens, and a very own special little deer that has decided that we are her family.
I am so happy that you took the time to know me a little better.
This is my creative journey...
I hope you will be inspired along the way!
Very Truly Yours,
