About Me

Dallas/ Fort Worth artist, Amy Tigner earned a Bachelor of Fine Art at the University of Wyoming, with an emphasis in painting, in the 1980s and had a solo exhibition in Japan in the 1990s.  She had a 20-year hiatus from painting while pursuing an academic career in English Literature.  Since 2006, she has been teaching Shakespeare at the University of Texas, Arlington. After earning tenure in 2013, Amy began painting again, primarily in the medium of watercolor.  She has also worked with alcohol inks and acrylics, and marbling paper and silk scarves, using traditional marbling techniques. Most recently, she has returned to oil painting, which feels a bit like coming home after a long journey.  As an artist, she is always looking for new techniques and new ideas for paintings.

Most recently, she created a solo exhibition entitled, "The Year of the Rabbit" as 2023 was a Rabbit Year in the Chinese Astrological System, and I was born in a Rabbit Year. This zodiac has a twelve-year cycle associated with 12 corresponding animals (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig) and 5 elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water). 2023 is a Water Rabbit Year, and the same as the year I was born. Symbolizing longevity, peace, and prosperity, the rabbit is the luckiest out of all the twelve animals. Occupying the 4th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the rabbit’s character traits include creativity, compassion, and sensitivity. The Water element signifies creativity and inspiration. To celebrate my 60th birthday in this year of the Water Rabbit, I began painting in January, 2023 and have created a collection of over 50 works that represent my Year of the Rabbit.  The show is full of rabbits, their wild cousins, hares and jack rabbits, and a rabbit garden of 21 botanical encaustic paintings arranged in the colors of the rainbow.  You can view these paintings in "The Year of the Rabbit" and in "Rabbit Garden" on the website.

Currently, Amy lives in Grapevine, Texas with her husband, Tom, and her ridgeback/boxer, Harper.
