“It is the seeking of the soul that inspires me to create. The connection with the incredible beauty and calm of nature is what my collectors say they love in my paintings.
While painting I move from observing the light as it defines an object into a place that eludes time and space. This is when I feel a connection to our Creation because the scene I am capturing is filled with such beauty it makes my soul sing.
When a collector expresses what I emotionally felt while creating the painting I know I have succeeded. “- Amy Evans
