Amy Perrier is a former Michigan artist now living in DeLand, Florida.
Amy has participated in juried Fine Art Shows from Michigan to Florida, winning numerous awards and accolades for her work. She won Best of Show and has been featured in Northern Michigan’s premiere magazines.
Amy, with her unique painting style, was featured on the cover of the North Carolina’s Bold Life Magazine in March, 2015. Her work was chosen for the Hendersonville, NC Art On Main, Fine Art Fair promotional cover in 2015 and again in 2016. She was interviewed by WLOS TV and appeared in a Carolina Moments segment. In the 2017 show season, Amy won 2 awards for her work in abstracts from Piedmont Park in Atlanta, GA, and Barefoot In The Park, a Buford, GA fine art fair. More recently, Amy won an Award of Excellence in the St. John’s River Sanford, FL show.
Her work is painted with acrylic paints, incorporating various techniques to add depth and interest to the work. She paints intuitively, often seeking an abstract outcome. To that end you will find her using a palette knife or her fingers, and rarely painting with brushes.
“I love using my fingers to paint much more than picking up a brush. It gives me balance; direct control from fingers dipped in piles of paint and then onto the canvas, while at the same time I feel a sense of freedom from getting caught up in little details.”
Amy and her husband currently live in DeLand, and she spends many afternoons in her studio/ gallery located upstairs at The Hub on Canal, in New Smyrna Beach. Her studio is open to the public and she welcomes art enthusiasts to stop in and watch her work. You can also find her on Facebook at AmyPerrierPaintings.
