Amy Brackenbury (1953 - ) was born and raised on a cattle and sheep ranch in the northern Colorado foothills. She majored in art and minored in music at Colorado State University.
From her official website:
"Amy’s artwork has been in some of the most prestigious shows and galleries in the US and Canada-- For the last several years she has also exhibited in her home gallery where she draws an international clientele. She has instructed workshops and loves teaching drawing and painting classes when she has the time.
The studio is located in northern Colorado on the old family ranch. In her studio gallery, you will find her paintings of animals- wild and domestic, landscapes, florals and portraits . Miniatures to murals and mixed media sculpture - almost every media and combination are explored and displayed."
Her process seems intense:
“Beginning with my thumbnail sketch, I create the abstract bones that are the skeleton on which the value, color, temperature, focal point, paint thickness and line will be hung. I tell my students that painting and drawing are like juggling twenty-five balls of different sizes. Each must be tossed into the air at just the right time, with the right intensity to make the whole show a performance to inspire awe.
It is daunting, this business of being an artist. It requires courage, tremendous courage to take chances and attempt compositions, colors, media and myriads of concepts that may work out. Big risks yield the greatest rewards. I listen carefully when my essence tells me, ‘This could be really amazing. No one else has done it. Do it!’
Enter my art and enjoy life with me.”
