Amy Lind, 1983 | Figurative painter

American Awards winning painter Amy Lind studied portrait painting at the Florence Academy of Art under “living master” Maureen Hyde and with Michael Grimaldi at the Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier.
She graduated Summa Cum Laude and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Her eclectic training has provided her with a unique approach and insight to realism, which is visible in both the traditional and contemporary qualities that her paintings possess.

Lind’s work has appeared in national publications, including The Art of the Portrait: Journal of the Portrait Society of America as well as three features in American Art Collector magazine.
Her paintings hang in both public and private collections around the world.
On top of gallery work, Lind is sought out by many for her uncanny ability to capture the likeness and essence of those she paints.

Compelled by the strikingly simple, yet infinitely complex qualities of the people and things that surround her, Lind attempts to convey a sense of life, beauty and truth through her paintings. Whether she is painting the figure, landscape, or still life, her work is recognized for its captivating quality of light and sophisticated use of expressive color.
Hailing from the Chicagoland area, Lind now resides with her husband, a commercial producer, in Los Angeles, California where she has been juried into the prestigious California Art Club’s Mentor Membership program.
She is currently represented by Robert Lange Studios in Charleston, South Carolina, and will hold her fifth solo exhibition there in December 2010.
