Amy Turner - Artist & Author
I’m an artist and author based in Garden Bay, BC. I’m an abstract expressionist who paints on canvas using locally foraged sand, wood, salt and seashells mixed with acrylics, photography and poems, creating highly textured paintings and collages. I’m also a fiction writer working on my first novel and have a short story published in a Canadian literary magazine. Both mediums, art and writing, tell stories of the strong feminine, the wounds we collect and the light that shines through the cracks.
Rather than paint nature, I paint with it. My mixed media abstracts include locally foraged bark, sand, wood, salt and seashells mixed with acrylics and books, creating extreme textures. This year I’m focusing on showing the intelligence of nature: how it survives without us and how we can put our energy into it positively, rather than draining it.
