Amy Swartelé

Amy Swartelé's paintings develop from traditions of surrealism and expressionism, using illusion and an evocative use of paint to speak to the nature ofexistence. Currently living in upstate New York, Swartelé is strongly inspired by her upbringing in Belgium, Holland and England. Swartelé received her BA with Honors from Wesleyan University, and her MFA from SUNY at Buffalo.

Swartelé has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout the USA, as well as in Belgium, France, Spain, Italy and India. Upcoming exhibits include a solo exhibition in Waterloo, Belgium. Amy Swartelé has taught at universities in NewYork, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Rhode Island, and is currently Associate Professor of Art at State University of New York at Potsdam where she heads the painting program.
