Koasek Traditional Band of the Koas Abenaki Nation
Amy Hook-Therrien has a Bachellors degree in Fina Arts from the University of Maine. She has been painting for almost ten years. She specializes in water colors. She is inspired by nature.
Amy is also a Traditional Abenaki singer.
I love to paint natural things, it could be a flower, a landscape, or a topographical map. I try to segment my pieces, painting and focusing on small areas at a time. I love to mix my colors in a way that they tend to separate slightly, giving the paintings texture.
