Heart Abstract, Amy Kotel


Color Pencil and Watercolor Pencil. 17.5×21.5, framed.


Artist Statement: Amy Kotel is an artist to the core. Whether it's fine art, performing art, dance, or puppetry, creating needs to come out of her for her to feel satisfied with life. Her fine art is bright, bold,  joyous, and or intense. She often uses patterns of circles to make the larger artwork. She loves to explore the dichotomy between how weird human life is and the joy life holds, and the beauty of nature that lives under all sidewalks. In recent years her medium was color pencils, but of late has been exploring other mediums such as collage, watercolor, paper mache, and soft sculpture.

Biography: Amy Kotel has been making art of all forms since she was a little bittle. Born and raised on Long Island, NY. She attended Syocett School of Visual and Performing arts as a fine arts major and went to SUNY New Paltz, initially studying fine art and eventually graduating with a BA in Women Studies and a Minor in Dance. Her career path has taken her along many work path environs including, but not limited to, dance, puppetry, fitness, environmental ed, and education. While most of her adult life, Amy has been a dancer, and fitness professional, taught many subjects, and was a professional puppeteer, she turned back to her fine art roots about seven years ago and became prolific in creating as the pandemic took over. For Amy, art is much more than just a creative outlet; but also an outlet for her dreams, challenges, and joys. Her work has been shown in many places locally, most recently having a solo show at City Space and at the River Valley Coop in Northampton.
