It's All About the Art: The Story of Amy Reshefsky
Art studio, fine art, glass, canvas, abstract.
As if drawn by a force, she went out and found a canvas, acrylic paint, and some paintbrushes. Images in her mind were calling her. She closed her eyes and listened and what came out was art. From her mind to the canvas ? like magic ? lines started to appear. Then color. At home in that tiny room surrounded by silence and unpacked boxes she found the calling that would forever lead her. She knew then the single truth she carries in her heart today: It's all about the art.
"I just started painting and I haven't stopped," she says. It's been a decade since the day she created her first painting. "Some artists stick to a certain style because that's what they're comfortable with but I'm more comfortable being creative in all directions," she says. "I love to try different things and different techniques. I can attack anything and enjoy the challenge." Her work is highly sought after by collectors and can be found in the homes and private collections of connoisseurs throughout America and Canada. One of her pieces, commissioned for a Delray Beach temple, tells the story of Passover. The colors come to life on the large piece of glass in a whimsical, even playful manner.
Her work is eclectic, her style is untouchable. To put a finger on it and try to pin it down is to take something away from the energy of her art. Her use of glass and wood add exciting elements of texture and transparency. Her color economy is dazzling, nothing is wasted, no lines are spared; often telling a story, each element serves a purpose.
Amy is a proud mother of 3 and grandmother of 7. She resides in Mont Tremblant, QC, and seasonally in Delray Beach, Florida. Her art can currently be seen on exhibit in The Heart of Delray Gallery in Delray Beach, Florida.
