Bio: Born in August, 1986, from childhood to adulthood, Atlanta-based artist Amy Katherine Minchew was rarely ever spotted without a sketchbook in hand. Her early homeschool experience with its flexibility and versatility allowed her the freedom to explore her creativity under no confines or limitations. She has been diligently working on creating her own brand of beautifully painted images and drawings. Using all different types of media, she adds in elements and influential symbols of her past and present to each piece. Beyond the aesthetics of her artwork, Amy brings an overwhelming sense of passion to her paintings. Amy’s art tells stories of strength and hope through emotion and sentiment with her sensual beauties. Her work is often recognized by her signature, abstract mandala designs, the melancholic expressions of her characters, and her distinctive curvaceous, soft women.
