The public is invited to meet Amy at a reception at Richard Boyd Art Gallery on Saturday, August 6 between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. where she will be available to discuss her current series of paintings.

About Amy Bickford

When asked about her art education and experience Amy said, "I graduated from the Maine College of Art (MECA) in 1983. Since graduating, I've held a variety of jobs while continuing to create works of art for individual clients, corporations, and small businesses, including painting murals for the Children's Museum of Art in Portland and recreating the artworks on the ceiling of St. John's Cathedral in Bangor, Maine.

Whether I'm painting a woodland scene or scenes from a wharf, Maine offers unending subject matter that inspires me at every glance. I create paintings in my studio using drawings and photographs as references to help me see beyond the physical attributes of the scene and capture my interpretation of the beauty of that place in time.

I prefer painting with gouache, but use a variety of mediums, selecting the medium that best helps me interpret the scene. My portfolio of new work includes scenes of the ever changing interior and coast of Maine. Through the years, I've been fortunate to use my talent and love of painting to bring happiness to others."
