EBSQ Blogger of the Week: Stephanie Amos

This weeks EBSQ Blogger of the Week is an amazingly talented artist with a love of both painting and ceramics. Earth, soul, emotions – everything she creates speaks to me!

Artist Stephanie Amos

Who and where are you?

I’m that happy-go-lucky girl you used to see in art class in junior high and then moved on to high school. You know, the one that was always spending every minute in the art room, even during study halls and independent studies. The one who expectedly went off to college right after graduation and realized after one semester that school wasn’t for everyone. That’s me! Well, at least that’s who I was when I was younger. Now I’m a full time artist and owner of KoiStudios, happily married to the love of my life, living and working in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.

Reflect by Stephanie AmosHow did you get started art blogging?

EBSQ was the very first artist community that I joined in 2005. Since then, I started my creative business called KoiStudios and joined the rest of the world wide web with a website and blog. I have also joined numerous social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr. I started my blog, the not so everyday blog of an artist in 2007. It hasn’t been until recently that I have been posting regularly.

Any tips for other EBSQ art bloggers?

I am learning that it’s good to share a little bit about your personal life as well as your art when blogging. People like to know the artist behind the art. I have recently started sharing photos of my garden, our animals and camping trips. It makes your blog a little more interesting to read than just looking at the same art day in and day out. Another tip would be to read other blogs and leave comments. It’s a great way to network with other artists and fun to! I always look forward to seeing what my online friends are creating. It’s like going to the museum first thing in the morning. I love it!


What’s your musical inspiration of choice when you’re working in your studio?

Music is a big part of my routine when making art. If I’m in the pottery studio I like to listen to Enya, ambient music, or classical piano and guitar. If I’m painting or working on a sculpture, I usually tend to listen to my ipod and let it shuffle, there’s a mix of country, alternative, instrumental, and new age. And when there’s no music on, there’s usually no art being made.


What’s coming next from your studio?

I love gardening and spending time outdoors. With that in mind, I’ve started incorporating flowers and such into my work by making a lot of planters. I’m really excited about the new botanical series coming from the pottery studio! There will be a lot of new vases and jars with colorful hand painted flowers and ferns. You’ll be able to find them at MuddyPotts, my Etsy shop or you can always check out the not so everyday blog for the freshest art right out the studio.

  1. I’m her biggest fan! She helped me Feng Shui my office – I have a beautiful, vibrant red painting on my wall for energy, and a round blue/green abstract on my other wall for my water element, and yellow too – for warmth, motion, cheerfulness and friendliness! She can make anything you want! I just tell her what I need, and Viola! There it is! Thanks Stephanie – you are the greatest!

  2. Dear Stephanie….Wow, I feel like I know a celebrity ! What a nice coverage ! I can’t thank you enough for all your help while we were judging the Westcliff Art Guild’s show. I’m so impressed with your work, and I simply must get myself in gear and find a way to understand all of this internet ” stuff”….. Bloging…. and Twittering…. etc… ha ha ! I have a lot of my Art that really needs to be seen. I just haven’t had the energy to go ahead and enter a lot of shows ! I don’t know if you’d have the time to explain the ” Blogging ” bit……???? Any help, advice….or ” go to” direction would be appreciated ! Keep up your good work ! Joni Giarratano

    1. Hi Joni!

      Thank you so much for checking out the blog! I would be happy to help you! How about when I come to Pueblo we can go over some things? It’s easier than you think, just takes some time. =) And we need to get your art on EBSQ too!

  3. Stephanie is my favorite artist. She is so diverse…pottery, paintings, sculptures, and photography. Like other bloggers have mentioned, give her some idea of what you want/like and she takes care of the rest. Her creations are truly from the soul and they radiate her passion in every piece! Great job and congratulations!

  4. Stephanie’s greatest passion is working some form of art. She has a keen eye for photography. Her photographs taken in Florence, Venice and Rome just to name a few places are absolutely wonderful. When she was working on her sculptures she poured her whole heart and soul into her work. Stephanie also does wonders with a paint brush; she loves abstract; her colors are so vibrant and moving. Her pottery is beautiful. Check out muddypotts.com
    Congratulations, you are awesome. Keep up the wonderful work.

  5. “Sweet Pea to our family” and has been since the day of birth.
