Amy Yosmali, a native of Greater Cincinnati has been an art lover all her life, but it wasn’t until 2001 that she began to explore the visual arts, especially painting, as a medium of self-expression. While her initial artistic endeavors were in music, she now considers herself both a student and practitioner of the visual arts, especially contemporary abstract art. In her work as a professional Web designer and Computer Instructor, she strives to successfully combine the utilitarian aspects of art with the purely aesthetic. Formerly located at Essex Studios in Cincinnati for over 10 years, Amy now sells her art at AYDesign – Art on Vine Studio & Gallery located in St. Bernard OH, where she continues to experiment with new forms and techniques.

Artist Statement

As a contemporary abstract artist, I feel that my passion for expressing myself emotionally is best conveyed through the imagery resulting from the instrumentation of colors, brushstrokes and movement on the blank canvas before me. Vibrant colors and action are important features of my art and I like to incorporate acrylics with metallic qualities to add depth, dimension and movement to my works. Much like a musician reacts to her surroundings and the moment, resulting in certain musical elements standing out and connecting with the audience – my paintings react to the nuances of their surrounding environments, inviting the viewer to connect with an ever changing perspective to the complexity of this expression.
