Artist Amelia Furman creates impressionist mixed-media pieces. “Through the layering of text, photographs, maps, and symbols, I bring forward the story of a place while using oil paint to express the transient nature of time,” says Amelia. While wanting to play it safe and work as a graphic designer and illustrator, her painting and drawing professors encouraged her to consider a fine art career. After college, her fellow artists in the Brandywine River Area in Philadelphia were highly influential in launching her professional art practice. Together with her husband, they built her studio on the lower level of their home. It functions as a family space and studio space for seamless working and living with two young boys. Amelia was presented with the Larimer County Artist of the Year award in 2019.

About The Artist
Through the layering of text, photographs, maps and symbols, I bring the story of a place to bear while using oil paint to express the transient nature of time. By using transparent glazes, suggestive strokes and small areas of clarity and detail, I invite you to come close, pause and find the underlying layers of story that make up the painting and while doing so, discover a part of your own story.
It is my hope that my work gives you a new lens with which to see the world around you, helps rediscover harmony and beauty in the dissonance and provides you with a constant presence of transcendent beauty in your space.
