about Amelia Myer

When I cleaned out my desk on my last day of work before retiring in 2015, I found broken bits of pastel, brushes that I’d forgotten to clean, sketches and paints – evidence of a lifetime interest in drawing and painting.  

In the past several years I have devoted much of my time to art classes and painting, both as a skill and a tool for personal and spiritual development. I have found that the presence and deep attention required to paint is a form of meditation that sharpens my awareness and perception of both the natural world and my place in it.

I began my art journey twenty years ago with pastels but for several years have been most interested in landscapes in oils. I also paint large abstracts in acrylic.

I am an artist-member of the Gallery ABQ, an artist owned gallery in Albuquerque, where I am also webmaster for the Gallery ABQ website.  For the past three years I have shown my work at the Gallery ABQ and have participated in many events and shows. I am also a member of Rainbow Artists: A Women’s Collective.
