Amy Belle Rice has a passion to explore and experiment. Her inspiration comes from her surroundings, emotions and imagination. Her free spirit guides her paintings. "I often begin a painting without a plan and allow the work to take on a life of its own. Other times I use one of my photos for a basic concept, then discard the photo and continue on by feeling, memory and imagination." A versatile artist, she uses a variety of mediums, her favorites being watercolor and acrylic.
Amy's museum quality original paintings and fine art prints are collected extensively throughout the United States and Europe. She was featured in Cape Life magazine's 2021 annual arts issue and is included in the book "Artist of Cotuit", a publication of the Friends of the Cotuit library.
