Today I’m thrilled to introduce you to Amy Evans, a plein air painter in Breckenridge Arts District.
Painting is not easy. As an artist, Amy thinks the biggest fear is that someone doesn’t understand what her paintings are about. They think they’re just pretty pictures, and they don’t really see that there’s more to this – it’s the whole experience that she is painting, and she wants to bring that feeling into someone else’s life.
Amy’s love of painting began as a child growing up in Shreveport, Louisiana. Teachers and her parents encouraged her talent. At the age of eight she took private lessons from the late Elizabeth Friedburg and continued to study art throughout her high school years. She was always painting and drawing and was involved with many art projects in school.
