From Ame Hughes… “The earth calls to me in a way no other element does, I feel her in my very soul. I’m most comfortable and feel most present with my bare feet in the dirt, alone with our Mother and all of her creatures. I feel a particularly strong pull toward trees, such majestic, deeply feeling beings they are. To commune with the trees is to experience bliss, for me. While I do most of my artwork inside my studio at night, due to scheduling conflicts with my very busy family, I revel in taking my easel outside and creating with the trees around me and the grass under my feet. This is where I find peace.”
Ame has the most amazing capacity to see deep truth – your deep truth – through her intuitive art. I’ve commissioned two pieces so far. Here’s one of them…
And an intuitive piece Ame did for herself…
About our guest artist Ame Hughes, Intuitive Artist
Intuitive art – a pastel painting of spirits and/or past life personas, accompanied by messages for you from beyond the veil. Very intense! Contact me to order yours, and thanks for your interest
Ame Hughes showed a natural artistic ability from a young age, astounding her kindergarten teacher with an accurate drawing of a horse. She took a decade long hiatus from visual arts in order to raise her four children, but couldn’t resist the call of her muse any longer and jumped back into the artistic fray in the fall of 2010. Ame feels a deep connection to both nature and women’s issues; subsequently, these themes are frequently explored in her art.
She works most often in hard pastels and pencil, but loves oil painting and wishes she could squeeze it into her jam-packed schedule more often. Originally from Pennsylvania, Ame worked in various jobs – including loss prevention, visual merchandising, and cellular phone sales – before she and her husband relocated to NC in 1999. Shortly thereafter, Ame picked up the stay-at-home-mom mantle and has been wearing it ever since. Other than taking every art course available in high school, Ame is self-taught; although she is planning on attending art school starting in the fall of 2013 (when her baby starts school), in order to further develop and explore her talents. Ame is currently exploring the combination of meditation and intuition with art. She lives and creates in the middle of nowhere in Alamance County, along with her husband, their children, six dogs, two cats, and various wild critters that visit their yard, garden, and woods.
