Amy is a landscape and figurative painter drawing on her experience in the New England country side, and her experience as a clothing designer in New York in the 1970s and early 1980s.
A fine arts graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Amy Conover is an active Connecticut and Maine painter. A 35-year resident of Simsbury, CT and a summer resident of Camden, Maine, her paintings have been informed by the extraordinary landscapes, structures, gardens and light of New England. Her figurative painting explores the human form and the interaction of figures in both outdoor working, and highly stylized environments.
She has shown in juried and non-juried shows in Maine and Connecticut and received awards at the WHAL juried members’ shows.
A member of the West Hartford Art League for over ten years, Amy has studied with Shira Avedore, Shawna Shane, Jerry Weiss, Ilona Levitz, Bill Simpson, and Paul Batch. She paints with the Back Room Collective and with a private group of painters in Stonington, Maine each summer. She has just recently joined the Simsbury Open Studios and will be showing her paintings with them throughout 2019.
