See more of her work on Facebook @AmyStonerFineArtQ: What themes do you hope to convey through your Window Art installation?
A: I wanted to celebrate Spring, renewal and fun/playtime while also keeping true to the business where I was painting, so it was kept in the theme of playtime while utilizing themes /games synonymous with the business of gaming and play.
Q: How would you describe your art style?
A: Colorful and graphic
Q: How did you first get into art?
A: I come from a creative family where we were always making something. My dad is a woodworker and my mother loved to draw, quilt and garden. It was natural that I would find my own creative niche.
Q: Where do you draw inspiration from?
A: I draw a lot of inspiration from nature that I then play around with to create a more stylized approach to it.
Q: What medium of art are you most drawn to or comfortable with?
A: I love painting and printmaking
Q: What do you love about Downtown Hillsboro?
A: I love the small town feel in a large metropolitan area, and the many small independent businesses that make a supportive and diverse community.
Q: What strategies do you use to rebound after hardship?
A: I try to force myself to take a break and just be. Take stock of the good things and what my goals are. I try to find a little bit of joy in the mundane and build up from there.
Q: What is your favorite part of Spring?
A: Trilliums blooming in the woods and the pale green of trees just budding out.
You can see the rest of the windows on display through June.
