Amy Koumaras is a self-taught artist residing in San Diego. Her early work centered on the sensuality and strength of the female form. Her “Women” series reflects femininity in the postures and subtle nuances of the placement of a hand, or the tilt of the head. These portraits show the vulnerability, joy, contemplation, and even fury that a woman can possess – sometimes all at once!
After finding success with the “Women” series, Amy has turned her attention to abstract work, using bold colors to saturate the canvas. These abstracts continue to express the emotions of her earlier pieces, without restriction of the physical form. Sometimes, the feminine can be found woven into the nonfigurative landscape of contrasting color fields. From fiery reds and oranges to pensive blues and greens, Amy’s work always centers on the many passions of the female spirit.
