ADDRESS Interview with Amy Stewart.
Define your craft in 3 sentences or less. I am drawn to bold lines and angles, soft movement and structure all together on one canvas. My work is acrylic on canvas.
Describe your creative process. I express myself through my art work. When I paint I am processing life, what I see around me, what I hear and what I feel.
Where do you find inspiration when experiencing a creative block? Buildings, mountains and people. Creative blocks happen and after years of experience, it’s my cue to take a walk.
What advice would you give to young designers / makers / artists / creatives aspiring to make it in their field? Find and connect with your community. The art community in Vancouver is so supportive to each other. We learn from and empower each other.
What’s your dream project? I want to do a HUGE painting, one that is so big I can’t fit it in my studio. Something SO big that has to be completed in a large warehouse! It even sounds daunting as I write it, but I have always dreamt of this.
What art and design trends are you excited about? Forever and always, I will be excited about handmade pieces. I love that more and more people are caring about what they put in their homes.
