Amelia Caruso makes changing your viewing perspective paramount in her work. Amelia was born in Cincinnati in 1962 and stayed in the area until 1996 when she moved to Colorado. Amelia attended the Arts Academy of Cincinnati and the University of Cincinnati. She was actually a Documentary Photography Major in college and brings that sense of “composing inside the viewfinder” to her paintings.
Her work as been exhibited in galleries and museums across the country. Amelia has had work on Emmy Award winning television shows such as Will & Grace in the 90’s through the mid 2000’s. Now she has found a more purposeful & powerful work with the introspective look of her current direction. The relationship of the conscious and unconscious is her subject matter now. The relationship between health and illness, what and how are they both defined.
Artist and maker of things.
I live and create in the beautiful state of Colorado. I am a freelance graphic designer and I make pottery, jewelry and other handmade items. I have loved art as long as I can remember. When I was young, I would spend my days drawing and writing. When I was a little bit older, I wrote, designed and printed my own magazines and collected subscriptions. I also collected all kinds of stationery whenever and wherever I could. I loved the paper and logo’s. I often visited a local stationery store. I dreamed of owning a stationery store of my own one day. I went in a slightly different direction but I still got to design letterhead and spec paper which I love. I was LUCKY because my dad owned an art supply store when I was growing up. He is my biggest inspiration and fan of my art and design. Also, he is how I got my nickname, Lala. I feel fortunate to be able to take what I loved as a child and live it as adult!
Minnie Lippiatt was born and raised in the concrete jungle of East Los Angeles. She studied art at Pasadena Community College. In 2002 she and her family moved to Loveland, Colorado where she continues her love of art.
Minnie is drawn to a variety of subjects which she visualizes both while awake and from dreams, incorporating those things that catch her imagination and allowing them to inspire her creativity for her paintings. She creates in many mediums from photography, ink and pencil sketches, to mixed media and acrylic painting on paper and multiple types of canvases. Her artwork is offered in many sizes, originals and prints.
While trees have always been a favorite subject for this artist from a concrete jungle, it only makes sense that her newest passion surfaced when she discovered wood canvases and fell in love with the process that allows her to find images given to her through the wood grain. She uses acrylic paints mixed with a flow aide medium to make the work translucent so that most of the wood grain shows through. Wood canvases are recycled from pallets and other wood sources that do not harm healthy living trees.
