Amy Skrocki is an Edmonton based interdisciplinary artist creating imaginative works of art from mixed media digital art, photography, metal, leather, fabrics, papers, and paintings. Her work is as much driven by her love of fantasy, mythology and history as it is by the unique stories and concepts, written by Amy and her husband (Tanner), to accompany each new piece. Ideas are often discussed in depth, written down and Tanner creates the final written piece to go with each character. As the depth of her concepts grew Amy begin to hone her photography skillset in order to visually capture her creations coming to life and, thereby, complete the creative circle she envisioned: written story or poem, development and creation of physical pieces, bringing everything to life visually through creative photography and digital art. Tanner will create his own poetic written interpretation of Amy’s concepts and this concept has been published along with the photos and has displayed in Amy’s solo exhibition as further development of the character portrayed.
Following the creation of the art pieces a visual concept is drafted, set design and construction completed, and a model selection is done for each photo-shoot with the intention of giving life to the overall concept and character(s) therein. A creative photo shoot is then completed capturing the raw imagery, which will become the basis of the digital imagery output from the last stage. Finally, each image is carefully edited using a variety of digital tools but also custom artistic elements such as Amy’s original hand painted overlays (transferred into Photoshop) to create a unique visual blend and, thereby, creating Amy’s own digital artwork / photographic style. Prominent photographers have described Amy’s digital artwork stylistically as “textured, rich and decadent.” Amy’s digital artwork follows a similar path to her other physical art works in that it incorporates a variety of mediums to create a unique interdisciplinary output. Amy’s hand painted overlays are physically created before being transferred into Photoshop to be layered into the photos. Additionally, many of the original design elements appearing in Amy’s other works are used as overlays and accents in her photos intimately drawing all of her work together.
Amy has also been hired for retouching and digital compositions please contact for prices.
