Amy Giacomelli creates hand-painted one-of-a-kind works of art on canvas. Mainly abstracts and landscapes done in acrylics, mostly large scale and lots of multi-panel pieces. I have to admit to being a huge fan of her landscapes, and I was totally stoked to do this interview.
Tell me about how you originally got into your craft, Amy.
Well I always knew I wanted to be an artist when I "grew up." Never considered anything else. My father is also an artist so I wasn't exactly discouraged from it!
What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
That's a hard one! Running a small business is pretty hectic, so instead of saying white water rafting, I'll have to say just trying to find time to relax a little in a quiet room with my Kindle and a glass of red wine is really high up on the list.
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
Staying organized and focused.
What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
"View through the Woodland"
When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
Always knew I would be doing something artistic.
What other shops or artists out there do you love?
Man there's tons. One of my all time faves is Yellena.
And my friend Suzannaanna.
What does your future hold?
I hope that in future I can can be fortunate enough to continue to do what I love into my old age, creating beautiful things for people to enjoy for years to come.
