Young Art Collectors – Amy Neiwirth
Amy Neiwirth, artist and art collector, with her cat Stella.
You may know Amy Neiwirth as the creative person behind Sweet Stella Designs. She also teaches art at a local private school, creates her own fine art and collects many works of art. She recently moved to a larger apartment in Olde Towne East and loved that it had more wall space for her to fill with her art collection. The layout of her apartment allows her to create
Some of the works are pieces she has created herself, some are works she has traded for, some are things she found on Etsy.com and some are pretty greeting cards or typeface prints that she loved and framed. Amy curates the Yummy art shows and has gotten a piece or two from the shows for her collection -darling s’mores, anyone?
Keeping some bright and colorful works in her studio keep her inspired. She also has a print from the Wayne County Fair that reminds her of the fun she had there. Although she doesn’t have a large budget for art, she feels it is important to support artists and their craft.
For some of her rooms, Amy selects a general color theme and then finds art for the room with that in mind. Most of her collection is arranged in small vignettes. Take a look!
