Amy Smith

Posted on September 29, 2009 by Sawdust Art Festival

My name is Amy Smith. I am 33 years old and I live in the city of Orange. I have been oil painting since I was 8 and drawing my whole life. I just wrote my first childrens book called I Have a Little Secret. It is about the magic of colors and I can’t wait to see what the public and especially children think of it. The Sawdust Festival is my first official art show and I can’t wait to be a part of it. Besides making art, I have worked with children my whole adult life. When I am finished with the Sawdust I will be concentrating on getting into the Healing through Arts program through the university of Chapman. I want to use my art to help children. I am adopted and know how lucky I am to be so. I want to concentrate my ‘art therapy’ in places like orphanages around the world. I am grateful to live in California where I will be able to make my dreams come true.
