Amy Shawley Paquette is a Virginia-based visual artist whose painting and illustration is inspired by the natural world.  Her work incorporates fauna, flora, landscapes, and textures she has experienced during her travels and daily adventures in the countryside.

After earning her Art History degree, developing her love of paint, and exhibiting her work in New York and LA, Amy was selected and trained in 2008 by Golden Artist Colors for their Working Artist Program.  She taught and lectured in their southern California territory before relocating back east in 2014 to offer painting lectures in Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware. In addition to her work with GOLDEN, Amy was trained in 2016 to be an Artist Lecturer for Williamsburg Oils.

Amy teaches art workshops nationally, offers online education, and published her first book in 2015
