"It's simple; I create art because it makes me happy. I try not to overthink the process of what I'm painting and let my intuition be my guide."
Amy Van Winkle is an artist living and working in Santa Fe, NM. Although her early artistic career focused on drawing, sketching, and mixed media works, she now works exclusively with the Encaustic medium. Van Winkle’s initial fascination with this ancient medium stemmed from its innate exchange between creation and restraint. This mastery of technique and dramatic restraint has garnered Van Winkle, a self-taught artist, international recognition.
