Inside the Studio
Today, I was planning on driving two hours to Solomons, MD to set up for my two-week Artist in Action residence at Ann Marie Sculpture Gardens and Arts Center. Combined with cancelled/postponed spring festivals and exhibitions, I felt a little lost. I still had these two weeks set aside. Should I just eat ice cream…
Maryland based artist, Amy Fix, is passionate about capturing her subject beyond physical likeness. Each portrait is driven by the subject’s personality, energy, and individuality. Her current body of work layers charcoal pencil with powdered, compressed, and vine charcoal to create tonal exploration and subtle mark-making.
With a Master’s Degree in Fine Art, Amy has received several awards and scholarships, including the College of Graduate Studies Research and Travel Award and the Carolyn Joyner Memorial Scholarship. She has been featured in the “Exploring the Arts” magazine at Georgia Southern University. Amy exhibits nationally and has art in LaGrange Art Museum’s permanent collection. She presently resides in Harford County with her husband and three-year old son. Her art can be viewed at The Artist’s Emporium in Havre de Grace and at the Harford Artist’s Gallery in Bel Air, MD.
