Amy Kalimat

Fanciful trees and overlapping, interlocking circles predominate, and the first thing viewers will notice when they see the artist’s work is the power of her color palette. It’s a long way from the soft, transparent look many associate with watercolor. A large reason is Kalimat’s not relying on a brush dipped in water to transfer pigment to paper.
