Amy Williams

Dayton, Oh


is a painter, whose primary medium is acrylic, that lives and works in Dayton, Ohio. Born in Washington D.C she spent several years living and traveling abroad and in the US during her early childhood as her father was in the military. He eventually retired in Dayton after 23 years of service.

Her approach to creating:
I’ve drawn since I was 6 or 7. I saw my older brother’s drawings and I was determined at that age that I was going to be just as good as he was. I used to copy pictures from the dictionary and I would draw every animal I saw in it. After copying my second dictionary I grew tired of that and moved on to other books. From this process, I eventually learned to look at things that other people don’t see. I look at everything. This is important to me. It can be any thing from a person, objects, a scene, even elements from other artist’s work that can capture my interest. I then pick certain aspects from it and this is what leads me to put it on paper or canvas.
