Amy Rimmer’s first taste of art competition came at the age of 12. Her grandmother and parents convinced her to put her Andy Warhol inspired sunflower pastel drawing into the County Fair Art Show. She won a blue ribbon. Her love for art only grew stronger. After graduating high school, she attended Bethany College as an art major. During the first semester, her grandfather was diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. Amy’s passion was put to the side as she dedicated time to help care for her family. This heartbreaking time made Amy want to change career paths and transfer schools to obtain her Bachelors of Science in Nursing.
After five years of working as a pediatric nurse, Amy started painting again. Her show “Joy” in the spring of 2017 was held in Connecticut for two months. She has also had local showings throughout Northwest Arkansas. Most recently, at Columbus House Brewery from May to August. She will also be at The Art Gallery, NWA’s newest Art Gallery. Amy currently resides in Fayetteville with her husband Thomas and their three children, Ayla, Luke and Alec, and their dog Ellie.
