Aut viam inveniam aut faciam.
(I'll either find a way or I'll make one.)
Amy Cathryn is an American Graphic Designer and Fine Artist specializing in Illustration, Watercolors, Digital Art, Photography and Design. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Montevallo in 2010 with a B.F.A. in Fine Art and minoring in Art History.
Born and raised in Birmingham Alabama, Amy currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
Ever since she was little, Amy had the uncanny ability to understand people deeply and empathically. It wasn’t until later in life she realized she had special gifts and even later until she began her spiritual path and was able to use it to intuitively help others.
Amy is an energy reader, a certified level III Usui Reiki master, tarot reader, medium, clairvoyant, clairsentient and intuitive with almost 10 years of experience since the start of her spiritual path.
Her readings are empowering and kid-friendly.
Drawing before she could write, Amy has been an artist her whole life. She pursued a degree focusing in Graphic Design, but after eight years and career experience ranging from newspaper pagination to art direction, she realized her true passion was with another subject entirely: fine art.
As a Meyers-Briggs INTJ, Amy enjoys problem-solving and planning the intricacies of detail-oriented projects. As a Fine Artist, she is passionate about discovering the serene space between her technical nature and creative flow.
The Artist Statement.
I prefer to focus on the structural elements of art — namely line, form and color. Dynamic, thick lines that contrast vibrant color patterns 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 thick, commanding lines. Often times I find myself combining botanical elements with the female human form, an echo of my fascination of the narrative between the dichotomy of humanity and nature, and of their connection.
I have always viewed watercolors as a medium with a mind of its own. It is intimate and spontaneous in nature, with a personality of its own. The relationship I have whilst putting paint to paper reminds me of our relationship with nature—intimate and compromising with that which prefers to be tenacious. The human elements are quite the opposite—the lines are placed with a sense of control and deliberateness because we are a species which embraces an individualistic sense of discipline and self-control. Such is an integral part of our very nature.
