Name: Amy K. Sanders, PSA
Bio: Massachusetts artist Amy Katherine Sanders is largely a self-taught artist. She studied with Ron Parent for several years and also painted under the direction of guest artists at Truro's Castle Hill Center for the Arts.
She considers pastel to be her primary medium, although originally she worked in watercolors and was a member of the Connecticut Watercolor Society for many years. She still paints occasionally in watercolors, and even acrylics and oils, but she finds the richness of pastel color and its flexibility allow her to capture more expressively the beauty and depth of the scenes that she is drawn to paint.
Amy is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America. Her paintings have been sold in a series of auctions to benefit Truro's Castle Hill Center for the Arts and the Truro Historical Society. She has exhibited in galleries in Connecticut and on the Cape, and has been represented by the Addison Art Gallery of Orleans, Mass. since 1998.
Amy was the Feature Artist, International Artist magazine, December 2010/January 2011 issue (#76) on creating paintings from photographs; Feature Artist, IA, February/March 2011 issue (#77) on using multiple layers and colors to create interest in pastel; and Feature Artist, IA, April/May 2011 issue (#78) on utilizing a wide range of values to increase depth in pastel.
She was included in the Artists feature in January/February, 2011 issue of the Pastel Journal; and in a piece featuring the depiction of the many faces of water, in the December, 2012 issue of the Pastel Journal.
