            Amy Patterson is primarily a landscape artist.  She has a love affair with the palette knife and finds that it is the perfect tool for creating the texture for which she has a passion.  Intense, thick layering of color is also a signature of much of her work.  Several themes have developed in Amy’s work over the years which reflect her interests and travels.  A fascination for the changes in the atmosphere due to time of day, weather conditions and season resulted in a series of paintings of the sky.  Graduate work in France, including a visit to Monet’s garden at Giverny, fostered an avid interest in painting water lilies and landscapes.   A third recurring theme in her painting is the love of reflections in any form but particularly those of the light and color from surrounding objects on bodies of water.  Mrs. Patterson’s paintings have been shown in the Alabama Watercolor Society Exhibit, Georgia Art Education Association Members Exhibit, the Georgia Art Education Association Governor’s Exhibit, University of West Georgia Graduate and Alumni Exhibits, Columbus Artists’ Guild Members Exhibitions, the Georgia National Fair, the National League of American PenWomen Biennial Exhibit in Atlanta, the Bank of America on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, and Site 109 Gallery in New York.
            Amy received her undergraduate degree in Art Education in 1974 and her Masters Degree in 2003.  She has taught art to every age level in the public school systems of Georgia.  During her tenure in Harris County her high school students won numerous awards in local, regional, state, and national competitions.  After thirty years of teaching Amy has retired to concentrate on her own creativity.
            Amy was born in Chamblee, Georgia and has lived the majority of her life in this state.  She presently resides in Midland, Georgia with her husband Pat.   Amy is represented by the Front Porch Gallery on Wildwood  and Freeze Frame on Broad in Columbus, Georgia and can be contacted at bamypattatyahoo [dot] com.
