Amy Van Stensel, Centennial, CO Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement Inspired by my love and knowledge of botany, I enjoy capturing the patterns and shapes found in plants. Each painting is like an investigation of the plant, focusing on numerous aspects of natural life. One painting may be a study of the growth of the petals, while another may focus on the structures hidden inside. Each piece is representational in form, however the main goal is to capture the beauty and uniqueness of each natural object studied.
The acrylic paintings included in this gallery are stylized and bold in color. However, my main body of work is done in traditional oils and has a much different feel. Check out my online gallery at www.amyvanstensel.com. I also post pictures and a blog of current works in progress.
