Hi, I'm Amy Diener and I'm a lover of color, painting, and traveling!
I grew up in the suburbs of New York State and moved to Bangkok, Thailand in the summer of 2013. I received a job offer to teach art at an international school. I decided to take a leap of faith and took the position! My experiences in Thailand have shaped my personality and artistic style in unimaginable ways! Upon arriving in Thailand, I had a bit of a culture shock - most things were quite different from the western lifestyle I had grown up with! The streets were bustling with bright and flashy signs that were either in Thai or broken English. There was this sense of chaos, but as the days moved forward, I also experienced the other side of Thailand - the kind Thai people, the 'mai pen rai' attitude meaning "no worries, it's all good", and the peaceful temples where monks meditated. My inspiration for my first collection was inspired by the vibrant colors of Thailand using big, bold brushstrokes. I also traveled frequently to countries outside Thailand, and now I can say I have experienced more than 25 beautiful countries in the world! Every place I went, I became obsessed with the color combinations I encountered, particularly from their landscapes and cityscapes. Inspiration was flooding my world from the aqua waters, golden sands, and green leaf colors of the islands in Thailand, to the magical bamboo forest and cherry blossom colors of Kyoto, Japan, to the purple and hot pink lupins of New Zealand!
My work began to evolve, and naturally dots starting emerging in my paintings. I had no clue why this was happening, but I went with it and started looking at different artists who happened to use dots in their works. I felt so inspired to paint with only dots, and then had an epiphany that I was passionate about painting dots! Having a long history of battling OCD, painting dots has been a positive outlet for me. The painting process is very repetitive and requires a lot of focus. It is a mindful practice, where I can be fully present and aware in the moment. I am able to embody the repetitive experience without getting lost in my thoughts. I am able to turn my suffering into something beautiful and inspirational!
My goal for the paintings to to provide you with a therapeutic experience, encouraging you to pause, take a breath, and enchant your mind and body!
For every original painting sale through my website, I will be donating 5% of funds to the International OCD Foundation.
This money will go towards bringing awareness, education, and accessible and effective treatment for individuals suffering from OCD. Individuals may use art therapy as a form of treatment, along with ERP (exposure response prevention) therapy. Treatments can be expensive like it was for me, so I want to reach out a hand!
