Stephanie Amato

Spring Explosion – 9×12, Oil – $950


Artist Statement:

Stephanie’s education started in the Illustration program at Parson’s School of Design in NYC continuing at the Art Students League and the New York Academy. Having participated in many local and national exhibitions, Stephanie has received top awards and recognition for her work. She is a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society, Signature Member of the Pastel Society of NJ, Resident Member of the Salmagundi Club, Oil Painters of America, Portrait Society of Atlanta, and the former President of “The New Jersey Society of Plein Air Painters” 2009-2012.

Working in oils, she paints impressionistic landscapes, floral and figurative compositions. Her intention is to produce work which creates energy and movement that will resonate with the viewer.

Stephanie is inspired by scenes of the water and sky, but can always find something of interest no matter what the subject. When presented with the opportunity to paint a figure in the landscape she will start with a general sketch, but quickly move to filling the canvas with paint. When drawing a figure she first spends a good amount of time getting an accurate sketch, making sure that all proportions are correct before continuing. Once satisfied, she will then let her creativity take over to produce a piece that has the same energy she seeks to achieve in her paintings.

Stephanie currently reside in Milton, Georgia and works both in her studio and outdoor on location.
