Amy Vangsgard lives in Los Angeles, California and graduated from Art Center College of Design in 1985 with honors. For over 20 years, Amy has been a successful award winning free-lance illustrator. She also taught design and illustration at Otis College of Art and Design.
As a fine artist she worked in many mediums: assemblage, clay, painting and most recently digital arts. As an assemblage artist Amy enjoyed the thrill of finding objects and putting them together to create something beautiful. Amy’s clay objects in her assemblages led to an entirely different style of clay that she sculpted, baked, and then painted. As Amy’s career in clay illustration developed, she found these same sculptural qualities in plants, and has since found a new passion in the photography of nature.
In her current work, Amy uses both digital photography and digital painting techniques to create exciting new imagery. Amy’s inspiration comes from nature, especially cacti and succulents as they have very unique sculptural quality to them. In particular, she is fascinated with the way light affects one’s perception and the way it illuminates an object such as a plant from behind and casts interestingly shaped shadows or creates a warming glow.
