She finally came to get the painting & im excited for its new home!
I bounce between Black Art & Native Art often in my styles. I strongly believe my ancestors use me as a conduit to express.
So these two pieces are a reflection of that very notion. I had a dry sprout started by a gallery I attended in hopes to get my work out there but it was just nothing I envisioned. So obviously traveling so far can leave you a little flustered; until I realized the image of the owl followed me all day long.
I was also overcome by emotions of stagnancy and that’s what brought along the rain. Rainy days are beautiful because it’s inevitable the grass is greener the next day.
Inspired by the beautiful duet Zhané from the 90s. Referenced from the music video “Sending My Love”
These beauties were featured at “Queendom” an event held by Black Women Bridging Borders at York University. They were sold by the end of the night!!!
He’s focused on the goal ahead & she’s looking at him.
This piece was created in 2 days & was an invigorating free hand study. My reference for the male was Metro Boomin of course. The album I had bumping was THEY. It was just a positive feeling to manifest this particular vision.
Don’t stress the progress!
I’m in a daze when I think of this creation. Understand me when I say I challenge myself with this art adventure. I’m self taught so a lot comes about as what images make sense in my mind to emulate. Basically all deriving from memory rather than references. I didn’t think I could articulate eyes with my paintbrush but I gave it my all. Can’t wait to further the progression.
Who is Amethyst Amaris?
To know who I am you must know what I represent. I am a holistic creator & healer. My capabilities expand beyond a paint brush & being a nutritionist. I say holistic creator because I am an artist, musician, dancer, with a natural knack for acting.
I say holistic healer because I am a claircognizant empath that has studied herbalism, natural nutrition, spiritual psychology and am currently studying naturopathy. I depend on my empathic abilities to heal people.
