My art embodies a spirit of fun!
I hope that my enjoyment of the creative process is apparent and may spark some extent of positive interaction.
Color! Pattern! Playful lines, shapes, textures and rhythms…
I purposefully choose materials and techniques that will lend themselves towards looseness. I wish to explore and portray a sensation of vibrant energy.
Themes and subject matter tie into these same sentiments.
Bio: Kelly Schafer, aka Amped Art Studio, is a visual artist based out of Austin, Texas. Originally from south Louisiana. Music serves as a main source of inspiration. Her mixed media works are visual love letters to the sounds, personalities, and raw energy of those she admires. Her mission is to celebrate, appreciate, and amplify!
Before Amped Art Studio became her full-time passion Kelly enjoyed a career as an art educator. She continues to support and promote the arts in education through involvement with schools, museums, and SXSW EDU. Besides music, children’s art has always been a major influence for Kelly due to its focus on process and daring spirit of pure fun!
