Here is a collection of art from Amy Stielstra. From the eye-popping intensity of "The Screaming Ladies" (water color on photo paper), to the delicate subtly of her award-winning colored pencil work, there's something for every taste.
In the words of the artist herself, "Inside you will find an eclectic mix of subjects, mediums, textures, and colors. Art to me is not just a craft, it is an expression; a fulfillment; a joy. No one medium can fit my every mood."
And we reap the reward. Put a copy in your living room. It's a feast for the eyes and a roller coaster for the emotions. Your coffee table will never be the same.
Newspaper- The Grand Rapids Press Date- Saturday Janurary 15, 2005 By Sylvia Krissoff Fine Arts It's hard to believe that the array of art on display at the Lowell Chamber of Commerce is the work of one person. But it is. It belongs to Amy Stielstra, who, a year ago, decided to give up her work in graphics and illustration to devote full time "to her passion for fine art." Who would believe the charming charcoal drawing "Safe," the animated girl on a swing in watercolor, and the several pieces from "Screaming Lady" are from the same artist? What you do realize is Stielstra is a very competent draftsman, and she also is interested in the exploration of material, surface and content. You might call her eclectic with her mix of styles and media. She has used charcoal, oils, acrylics, watercolor, inks and collage. No one style captures all her moods.
