Amethyst’s work finds inspiration from dance, music, and emotion. She chooses her colors carefully. Using delicate and playful brush techniques she creates sparse landscapes of texture. A wisp of magic exists in her unorthodox methods. As a self taught artist Amethyst has explored the United States expanding her knowledge of technique and traditions of the multitude of cultures that create our current society. The landscapes of New Mexico and California have shaped her openness to color dynamics. She began to hone her talent in her youth after the discovery of the folk art traditions. As she matured she became inspired by the meditative expressions of eastern traditions. Currently Amethyst Moira Garvey is creating works influenced by the fusion of ancestral spoken disciplines and modern rhythms.
