                                       MY LIFE HAS ALWAYS BEEN FILLED WITH EXTREMES;  I PAINT THE LIVES OF "CLOCHARDS & ROYALTY "

 

Amy Polling

Artiste / Peintre

Les Pays-Bas / The Netherlands

 


Born in San Francisco, out of a Dutch artistic family, Amy Polling has also French blood running through her veins. She has lived in various countries and considers herself as "an European Citizen with an American Topping".

She gets her inspiration from her own life experiences and through her travels around the world, where she came in contact with people from all backgrounds and cultures; the Bedouin, Clochards ánd Royality. She especially feels drawn to people with passion for life and who have experienced all corners of life....people, with a charismatic enlightment; "the Bohemian" and "the Elite", such as Musicians, Pierrots, Dancers, Princesses and Kings...

In her paintings there is a strong influence of her theatrical backgroud; a sense of drama, poetry and music. She paints masculine with passion....and, feminine with sensuality, serenity and mystique...

After her 5 year's studies at the Royal Art Academy in The Hague, The Netherlands, Amy "eloped" to Paris, to start a career as a Fashion Designer at "Sonia Rykiel". After Paris, she went back to The Netherlands, to work as a Theatrical Costume Designer/Art Director  for a number of years. Her creative abilities in Theatre took her to many different countries. And although, Amy has been painting all her life, it is since 2006, that she made major changes in her life, to change a succesful career, into the career of a Professional Fine Artist....

"My paintings are my Identity; the woman, who is looking for her self awareness & being, who is touched by life's experiences and has become aware of her endless possibilities & authentic sense of freedom. My works are short expressive stories, which carry the message of Love, Pain, Passion and Dreams... I am confinced that Art can put down many borders & bridges....and, reach beyond horizons; to bring All Cultures back together in Peace & Understanding....and, reach out to all People"...

 

 Amy has exhibited her work in: the Netherlands, France, Monaco, Italy, Belgium, England, Dubai and the US.
