I love the feel of a paint brush on fine papers, the explosion of color it creates as it connects to the paper, and the joy I feel as my subject comes to life. I mostly paint representations of living things and express them through my interest of repetitive pattern, developed during my years as a graphic designer. My patterns range from painting a hundred individual butterflies in a series down to a tiny complex pattern on the wings of a single dragonfly. I leave a white background on many of my paintings to allow it to speak without interruption and when alongside others in the series, it becomes one voice in the arrangement. This also allows me to digitally use them in marketable designs for commercial licensing. When I do paint a background, I unite the subject to its environment spontaneously through patterns of color, texture, and shape.

My paintings have appeared in multiple Better Homes & Gardens publications, and originally designed for my own use, my free art calendars have been downloaded over 400,000 times worldwide. My art is available for licensing.

After receiving a B.F.A. from Florida State University, I worked as a graphic designer for several years in advertising and corporate marketing. I have created designs and illustrations for multiple Fortune 100 companies such as Oracle, Cisco Systems, Ashworth Golf Wear, and many others.

I returned to painting by taking a community class with watercolors. I found my passion and have gone on to license and sell my art work globally. My paintings have appeared in multiple Better Homes & Gardens publications, and will be in another publication later this summer. Originally designed for my own use, my free art calendars have been downloaded over 500,000 times worldwide. My art is available for licensing.

My originals and signed prints are available online at AmyKirkpatrickArt.com.
