Amy Figueroa's Profile
Hi I'm Amy. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children. While they are at school everyday, I drink way too much coffee and work from my home.
I like to use bright colors and a sense of humor in my art. I don't think that art needs to be serious. I create pieces that are silly or sometimes awkward because I can identify with these two feelings more than any others.
I find inspiration and some of my materials, from Thrift stores. I like to "upcycle" gently used fabrics and make them into beautifully strange characters.
I like characters that are cute and ugly at the same time.
I have learned that you never know what is just around the corner for you. So don't give up and keep dreaming BIG!
