A Quick Peek at What's New with AmyLee

My first interview with the young French painter AmyLee took place in 2008 as she was just beginning her career. I encountered her colorful paintings by means of social media and shared what she was doing here. This past week I reached out to see where her colorful images had propelled her and find she has continued to produce plenty of work in her distinctive style. Here's a snapshot of what's new with AmyLee, eight years down the road.

EN: What attracted you to working in acrylics?

AmyLee: I work quite fast and my technique has to work out as fast as me as well. Acrylic is perfect in that case!

AmyLee: I’m a professional visual artist since 2008. You can visit my website www.amylee.paris

AmyLee: Ideas come from everywhere: at my studio, in the street, in a book, in a magazine, on TV, on computer…
