2019 SOLO SHOWS Amy Hook-Therrien
“I love painting with watercolor. When I first started working with the medium it made me nervous not to be able to control it, but in time I learned to love the uncontrollable chaos of it. I use fine white lines and ink to help contain the paint in certain areas. I mix my paint loosely so that it separates slightly giving the painting texture. I love to paint things from nature, waterfalls, trees, plants, stones, as it allows me to be freer in my painting style; nothing ever looks exactly the same in nature. You can fall in love with the imperfect: a flower missing a part of its petal, a tree with a broken branch. Painting in nature is always exciting, and exploring it is my passion.”
Amy Hook-Therrien is a native Vermonter. Originally from Chelsea, she grew up nestled on top of a hill overlooking the valleys below. She was surrounded by nature and adventure. She graduated from Randolph Union High School with a passion for art. She went onto college at the University of Maine in Orono, majoring in fine art with a focus in sculpture and painting. After graduating with a BFA from UMaine, she moved back to Vermont, and she and her husband bought a house in Windsor. When she is not creating art, Amy loves to travel, hike, garden, and spend time with her family.
