Amy Carruth-Drum, Pineville, Louisiana Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement I am a self taught artist who loves 'happy' pieces. My intention with each creation is to draw a smile, giggle or even a warm fuzzy from viewers. I work with many textures, gels, patterns, and MUCH COLOR. I love incorporating a black and white pattern, whether great or subtle to most of my pieces, and finish each piece with either black or black and white blended textured outline to make the colors pop. I only use acrylics or gouache.
