“Minneapolis Miracle”

5BFACE85-091C-4691-AB22-C329B67B5E36The Minneapolis Miracle painting I finished Wednesday is being delivered next week to Stefon Diggs per his request. I’m so honored and believe there is definitely a higher power (God) that has made this all happen.

The story I am about to tell is solely to inspire others to do what they dream even if it seems unreachable.
When I was born I suffered a traumatic brain injury that left partial paralysis to the left side of my body which affects the muscle and coordination.  My parents were initially told I would likely need medical devices/ assistance to walk . Through years of physical therapy and support from my family I am very fortunate to be where I am.
Everyone has their own disabilities or challenges,  and I believe god uses those for good in his own way and own time. Looking back, my disability may have kept me from certain sports, jobs, hobbies…but it gifted me with so MUCH more. I may not be able to paint a stick figure with my left hand, but god has allowed my right hand to be a gift of great abilities. My paintings were not very advanced starting out as you can see from this painting below I did at age 21.

With passion, determination, and faith, you can reach your dreams. It may take years and lots of rejection but my best advice is to never give up or lose sight of your dreams. Some of my biggest hero’s in life are those that have turned their disabilities into opportunities.

New Series featuring Minnesota sports. 

During a recent live painting at the Northtown mall, I was approached by an owner of a sports memorabilia company called 2brossports.com. Todd purchased a Vikings painting and began to discuss an idea that I couldn’t pass up. I am not the most knowledgeable in the sports arena but I love going to the games for the fun atmosphere. 

Todd proposed an idea to partner up and commission me to paint sports themed paintings. I’m excited about this new opportunity and am very thankful to Janet and Linda, who initially reached out to me and hired me to do some local live painting events at the mall. 

I do most of my updating and posting on my Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/AmyMarieArtFanpage/ please follow and “like” my page to hear about new paintings, giveaways, and events.

Thank you!!!

It was a great day for me yesterday as I had many fans come to visit me at the Art in The Park art fair yesterday…. and ended up being chosen as the winner of the People’s Choice Award!  I am not the most vocally expressive person so art fairs make me a little bit uncomfortable. I am learning to get past that as I see so much love and support from family, friends, and fellow artists! I met some really great people there and today I joined the Rum River Arts organization in hopes of giving back to the community I grew up in. I just wanted to express my gratitude for all that support art and artists and specially for all the help and support I receive daily to keep going with my passion. Thank you and God Bless!!!

Fathers Day is June 18th.

I have now painted over 15 fishing themed paintings. I have received an outpouring of love and support for these paintings! With over 100 fishing themed prints sold last year, most of them went out to fathers and husbands for Father’s Day and Christmas. I received many wonderful messages letting me know the gift was greatly received and not one disappointed customer. With Fathers Day right around the corner I am still able to get the prints shipped to you within 8 days after payment. Please email @ Amarie700@gmail.com or message me with your interest and I will do my best to respond within a few hours. I accept payment via Paypal or can also accept credit or cash if picking up. Hope to hear from you!

Gone Fishing…

My memorial weekend project was a success, even better that my dad and I got to hang out and start getting the boat ready to take out. Figured it would only be fitting to add some Amy Marie Art to the boat.(my dads idea).  Growing up some of my favorite memories were out fishing with the family on this boat. For the past 5+ years the boat sat in storage because of busy life and the addition of 4 grandbabies. This year we are getting that boat back out and going to continue the great memories that we can cherish forever. My daughters can’t wait for their first time fishing. I hope you all are able to enjoy the summer and make some wonderful memories as well! Some of my fish artwork is being offered as a 3m boat wrap as well so message me if you are interested in a quote.  Cheers to summer!

“State of the Art” (SOTA) series to continue. 

Last year I introduced my “SOTA”(State of the Art)  series which took off and produced more sales and opportunities than I could have dreamed of. Since then I have been working with some great companies whom I owe a big THANKS to!! One of my newest partnerships is  with a company who will produce boat wraps of my fish art, and I also plan on completing a painting on a boat this summer! I am so very thankful for the support and encouragement I receive daily from you all! I plan on expanding my art to include more abstract paintings but will continue with my wildlife art as well. You all have kept me extremely busy with comissioned paintings and please keep them coming! I plan to start hanging at more local businesses as I have an overload of art in my studio that needs to be hung! If you or anyone you know needs artwork in their business or shop please reach out!  Take care and God bless!
