Amy Diener loves art, color and travel.
She creates art to express her life's journey.
Her style of art is detailed dot paintings of mandalas, animals, trees, flowers, portraits and figures.
Amy finds the detailed dot painting practice to be meditative, bringing her to a state of liminality, which is a pause or the space in between.
In this space, her thoughts become silenced, and she is fully aware of the present moment.
Amy vulnerably shares about her long battle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Painting dots served as a form of art therapy for her, and alleviated her suffering from OCD.
She is inspired by the work of Yayoi Kusama, an artist who uses her signature polka dot paintings to cope with hallucinations.
