About the Instructor

Amy has been teaching art for a decade, focussing on a wide range of topics such as plein air painting, perspective, encaustic painting, gilding, with a focus on painting and drawing the human figure. In recent years she has been shifting her artistic practice towards finding new ways to explore the internal landscape which has led her away from some of the traditional paths she learned through. This mentorship program will incorporate many of her learnings that she gleaned through years of struggle, with the hopes that you can save time and energy in the process of discovering your own voice through your work.


Classes / Workshops / Demos / Critiques

Amy teaches and offers demos to groups and on a one-on-one or group basis. She has taught for a collection of art clubs / groups / schools / stores in the Fraser Valley and Vancouver BC, and runs her own workshops and classes. For portfolio review, email directly below.

Amy also facilitates free Art Critiques, sponsored by the Langley Arts Council, on the last Monday of most months in Langley BC (or, during the pandemic, virtually through a video conferencing platform). This is an opportunity for artists to get feedback on their work, and connect with other artists. Meetings touch on many aspects of the creative process, including technique and composition, as well as bigger questions like why we do what we do and how it impacts others. Join Amy for a night of discussion, input, and connection with other visual artists! Showing your own work is recommended but optional.
