Growing up in a home full of pets and their portraits, Amy realised there was perhaps more than one way to *ahem*, paint a cat, and combining her love of dogs and Expressionist Art brought Amy Spittle Art to life.
Amy is a full time artist and married mother of one based in Ely, Cambridgeshire. She also has a rescue dog courtesy of the RSPCA. Charlie is her beautiful "rat bag", faux dobe(rman) and source of constant heaps of love and consternation in equal measure.
The portraits go through five stages before they are considered complete. First, freely hand drawn in pencil the subject takes shape and their quirks are celebrated. Then they are redrawn in ink. This permanence is so exciting as every mark counts. There is no erasing, or redrawing an ink portrait. This gives the pieces a vibrant freedom as you can see every choice the artist has made. Third, they are transferred to the computer where they are prepared for colour. Lastly, each piece is printed and returned to the studio where it undergoes further ink-work to ensure that the piece you receive is a true one-of-a-kind.
Within each creation you can see Amy’s fervour for dogs, great and small and her unending passion for colour.
