Amy creates imagined urban landscape paintings using drips of liquid acrylic paint. Her innovative drip painting technique has earned admiration from millions across the globe. Drip painting is often considered a form of abstract art. The drip technique used was developed over a three year period and has been used over a decade in her work. Amy skillfully rotates her canvas and uses a water spritzer to manipulate the path of each drip. Architectural lines are highly controlled, while natural elements embody the spontaneous liquid impulse.
