Featured Artist Friday: Amilia

Today, our featured artist is Amilia. Her works are currently on display at Deer Palace, and are being kept in a private collection. She plans to make some works available for purchase in the future, and to further develop a current series on which she is working into a gallery showing.

She loves the use of color and line shape in her drawings. She likes to experiment with movement, line depth, and shading to convey expression.

She draws inspiration from daily occurrences and the images she finds all around her, and rarely passes a day without working on a creation.

She is currently working on a series about hands and the many ways they interact with the world.

Upcoming projects include illustrating a childrens' tale, and rewriting and illustrating her own first book.

If you have artwork by a budding artist that you would like turned into a wearable piece, visit Analiese on Etsy! Or visit Deseta.net where you can have a picture of your child's turned into a hand embroidered pillow.

I always loved the fact that my mom has a big ol' portfolio of my work that she lovingly laminated or sealed. It's always fun to look at my childhood drawings and wonder what I was thinking at the time. I want to do the same for my kids.

Dear Sinclair, wonderful drawings from Amilia. I was an elementary art teacher for over 35 years. It's nice to see authentic children's drawings on the net. Good for you both.
