Lai, Amey. b. Toronto, Canada. Amey has always been an artist. From painting classes at a tender age, her distinctive artistry has always defined who she is. Graduating with a BA in Design from The Ontario College of Art and Design, her career in design has taken her from New York to L.A. and back to Toronto.
A contemporary artist, Amey's inspiration comes from her love of textiles, patterns and expressive colour palettes. Mixed media pieces combining acrylics and plaster, her pieces evoke a wide spectrum of moods. Amey's pieces can range from dreamy, hauntingly romantic to vibrant bursts of cheer to whimsical and playful. "I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music." -Joan Miro
