    Williams, Amie


    In the spare time from her career as a Mechanical Designer for the Oil and Gas services company Cameron Inc., Houston, TX, Amie Williams produces abstract art. Originally trained in the Classical Arts, Amie holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Lamar University, Beaumont, TX, where she appeared on The Dean‚s list and President‚s list in multiple terms. At Lamar, Amie was fortunate to study under such esteemed professors as Meredith Jack, of Houston, Texas and the late Jerry Newman, who in 1981 was named Official Texas State Artist by The Texas Commission on the Arts. Her undergraduate work garnered outstanding reviews from professors and fellow students alike. After college, Amie shifted toward design for engineering and computer based development. She self-taught and honed a vast skill set of technical abilities including Computer Drafting, 3-D Design, web development using ASP, Cold Fusion and Javascript, Web Database Integration, and 3-D Mechanical Design. During this time, she broadened her technical repertoire, producing web sites, logos, advertisements, and technical designs in her spare time, all while pursuing her career in Mechanical Design. Amid her technical and computer based world, Amie always kept alive the hope of returning to her God-given artistic talents that provided so much praise and pleasure. Following the urgings of friends and family, her dream of returning to the canvas was realized in spring of 2010. Thematically, Amie is inspired by Energy. Amie seeks to probe various aspects of Organic, Kinetic, Gravitational, and Spiritual; Esotericism. Her underlying premise is: „The universal life-force of energy flows within and between all things and beings.‰ Amie‚s pragmatic philosophy toward acrylic on canvas is also demonstrated by innovative techniques. One hallmark procedure employs broad brushstrokes covered by finite lines laid by precisely ejecting wet acrylic from paint-filled tubes. Amie also uses her drafting expertise in the planning stage on blank canvas. Her nascent, burgeoning body of work immerses the viewer into her diverse world of abstracts. Her placement of acrylic colors and shapes is influenced by such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollack and Wassily Kandinsky, through their understanding of energy put to canvas. Bright colors and brooding depth proliferate through her paintings. The results encompass a broad spectrum of textures and effects. Lastly, Amie‚s art is deeply therapeutic for her; she hopes this to be true for others. Art, with energy, heals through vibrations of color and interactions with the soul. Amie‚s goal is to touch others and inspire the lives of people who experience her paintings. Viewers capture a glimpse inside her mind‚s thoughts, feelings, and emotions manifested in colors, shapes, and textures.
