Take a Peak: Amy Price

Artist finds inspiration in nature

Mixed-media artist Amy Price saw her work develop to a new level after returning to her hometown a decade ago, drawing on the inspiration of her natural surroundings. Price is planning to open a studio in the new year to actively create and showcase her art, as well as collaborate with other artists.

How would you describe your artistic process?
I am a mixed-media artist who is passionate about creating unusual, intuitive, spiritually driven pieces embodied by feminine energy. I utilize a variety of mediums including acrylic paint, fabric, resin, wood and copper.

What is your background?
I was born and raised in Powell River and moved away for school. I worked in the film industry as a special-effects, hair, makeup and costume artist. I returned to Powell River 10 years ago, met my partner and had two wild and beautiful girls.

What inspires you?
I am inspired by texture, colour, found objects, family lineage, cultural heritage, spirituality and spending time in nature. I am also hugely inspired by our community of artists.

What’s your dream project?
It would be a community installation art piece involving light, the elements and nature.

What are your plans for 2018?
I’m opening a working studio to focus on building a body of artwork and a space to show it. It will potentially be a space for collaborative projects and workshops. I would love to have workshops for healing and self-discovery through the creative process. It’s an exciting time.
