Amy-Lee Tak is a self-taught artist with five years' experience as a professional painter working in gouache, ink and acrylic on paper. Her work depicts unapologetic rest, comfort and freedom in ones own skin, mirroring her own aspirations for softness and self-love. Her distinct style can be characterised by her flat application style and playful use of rich, vibrant colours.
Amy-Lee works from her collaborative studio space in Woodstock, Cape Town.
"I'm in love with bright, bold colours that evoke a sense of joy and whimsy. The women portrayed in my work tend to be idealistic to the point of blissful ignorance, living in a smoosh-smash of colourful worlds free of demands and complexities."
