Amy Brackenbury Biography
Artist Amy Brackenbury lives where she was raised
on her family's ranch in the foothills of the Rockies in northern Colorado. It is a lifestyle that
she loves, in tune with the outdoors, the abundant and varied surrounding wildlife. Living
on a ranch gives her an opportunity to work from live subjects.
It was no surprise to Brackenbury's family when she went to Colorado State University to study art and
painting. There were also several proficient artists on both sides of her family. Amy
Brackenbury admires oriental art for its sense of composition, negative space, and simplicity. Realism
is the style with which she portrays her animal images, with attention focused on the main
Brackenbury paints primarily in acrylics, but for fun whe may use oils and may
"stray to unrelated abstract subjects." In between spending time with her husband, artist
Lars Larson, her two daughters, the animals, the ranch, the garden, and a myriad of other
distractions, Brackenbury finds the time to paint. Her effervescent personality and joie
de vivre plainly show in her joyful paintings of her adored animals.
