"New Life" not only illustrates the life cycle of a Monarch on a Milkweed plant but in addition, represents a deeper meaning of death and transformation as the caterpillar dissolves within its chrysalis to transform into a more glorious creature.
To me, the world is a great cathedral and the beauty of nature is its adornment, silently speaking of its Creator. This is what inspires me to create.
In my paintings, I seek not merely to make representations of what I see, but to explore my feelings about places I have visited or scenes in nature that I am drawn to. Symbolism and allegory have also fascinated me and often find their way into my art. Through these means, I hope to give the viewer a glimpse of the world in a new light.
Amy Browning’s love for art began early in life, and at the age of 13, she enrolled in weekly watercolor lessons. She graduated with a degree in studio art and art history from McDaniel College in Westminster, MD and, in addition to creating art, shares her talent through teaching drawing and painting to children, teens, and adults.
A number of Amy’s works have been juried into highly competitive exhibits in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, and her paintings grace the walls of collectors throughout the United States and the United Kingdom.
