Amy Lind's (b. October 6, 1983)
status as an emerging figurative painter is becoming more and
more evident. At the young age of 27, Lind's work had already
graced the cover of two nationally renowned magazines, Art Calendar
(May 2010) and American Art Collector (December 2010), and in
February (2011) she was named Southwest Art magazine's "Artist
to Watch: the Editor's Choice for Up-and-Coming Talent."
She was recently recognized with honorable mentions in the prestigious
Art Renewal Center Salon and the Portrait Society of America's
Member's Only competition.
With a Bachelor of Fine Arts
degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design and additional
instruction from the Florence Academy of Art and the Bay Area
Classical Artist Atelier, Lind's eclectic training is visible
in both the traditional and contemporary qualities that her paintings
possess. Compelled by the striking subjects around her, she poetically
infuses captivating qualities of color and intriguing light into
each of her paintings while attempting to convey a sense of life,
beauty, and truth.
Lind's work hangs around the
world in both public and private collections. On top of gallery
work, she is sought out by many for her uncanny ability to capture
the likeness and essence of those she paints. Furthermore in
addition to the fine art world, her paintings can now be found
published in a Penguin children's book titled "Marcel the
Shell With Shoes On: Things About Me".
Lind grew up in the Chicagoland
area, recently had the opportunity to live in sunny California
for three years, and now calls beautiful Savannah, Georgia her
home where she lives with her husband in their quaint 1930 brick
