My name is Amy Cathryn Baldis—I am a psychic medium and fine artist.
Drawing before I could write, I have been an artist my whole life. I pursued a degree focusing in Graphic Design, but my deepest passions always leads me back to fine art...and my intuition.
I am a technical person by nature (Meyers-Briggs INTJ if you're into that stuff), which can be an interesting contrast between my analytical mind and creative flow. As a psychic, I think that mentality keeps me grounded so I can better connect to the divine.
I am an American Fine Artist and psychic consultant. As an artist, I specialize primarily in Illustration and Watercolors. As a psychic I specialize in mediumship, tarot and life readings. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Montevallo in 2010 with a B.F.A. in Fine Art and minoring in Art History. In December 2016 I graduated from the Sandy Anastasi System for Psychic Development.
I call Birmingham Alabama my hometown, but currently reside in Atlanta, Georgia.
Ever since I was little, I always had the uncanny ability to understand people deeply and empathically. It wasn’t until later in life I realized I had special gifts and decided to set out on my spiritual path. Eventually, I began honing my skills and gained the confidence I needed to start intuitively helping others. I am a certified psychic medium, energy reader, a certified level III Usui Reiki master. I'm also an empath, tarot reader, clairvoyant, clairsentient and intuitive with almost 10 years of experience since embracing my gifts. My readings are empowering and kid-friendly.
I prefer to focus on the structural elements of art—namely line, form and color. Dynamic, illustrative lines which contrast vibrant colors have always been something I've found appealing. Japanese woodblock prints, the Art Nouveau movement and especially comic books are the artistic styles I find myself drawn to time and time again.
My work highlights the relationship between positive and negative space through contrasting, illustrative lines. Often times I find myself combining elements such as flora, mythos, and the female human form, an echo of my fascination of the dichotomy of humanity and nature—and also of their connection.
I have always viewed watercolors as a medium with a mind of its own. It is intimate and spontaneous, and tends to go about doing its own thing at times. I like to think of the way I paint as a parallel to humanity's relationship with nature—dichotomic. The whole process of painting from beginning to finish can be tenacious yet compromising. The natural elements of the process lie in the colors—they flow and go where they want to—they grow in places. The human elements are quite the opposite—the lines are placed with a sense of control because we are a species which embraces self-control and discipline. When I combine the two, it feels like a harmony between the organic and the ideal.
