How Amy's Acrylic Artistry came to life!
Hello everyone! Thank you so much for visiting my website!
I'm Amy. I have been a registered Nurse in Ontario Canada since 2004.
I have battle chronic anxiety since I was a little girl. I have been working as a frontline nurse for quite some time now. In 2020, when the pandemic first hit, I was working on a very busy medicine floor. COVID patients were popping up on our unit on a daily basis. We had no idea what we were dealing with at that time. Because of my anxiety and having a background as a mental health nurse, I have always been a huge mental health advocate.
I knew in April of 2020 as the COVID numbers started to climb that I needed to take some time off for myself, my anxiety was consuming my thoughts. I'm a solo parent and knew I needed to take care of myself so I could take care of my kids.
During my time off I found myself locked to the couch in fear. I was watching a lot of YouTube . That's when I discovered fluid art. A lot of the artists I was watching talked about how they found fluid art through their own mental health journey. So, I decided to give it a try to see if it would help me. It did! My kids encouraged me to start my own YouTube channel, sharing my experiences as a frontline nurse, mental health advocate and now fluid artist. That's when Amy's Acrylic Artistry came to life.
