Muralist covers Ute Pass

Posted

From hotel maid to muralist whose works are both dramatic and soothing, Amy Spring is impacting the art scene in the Pikes Peak Region. From murals at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to 3-D paintings at Tweeds Fine Furnishings, Spring glorifies nature in her works.

Currently working on a mural at the Woodland Park home of Clare and Jeff Watson, Spring uses drywall mud and acrylics for a wildlife scene typical of the natural ambience of the area.

With deer, birds, water and meadow, Spring has created a mural that casts a sense of peace, a fitting scene for the Watson's bedroom.

Spring credits an innate muse for her artistic creativity. “I just listen to what my clients say they want,” she said.

With her extensive portfolio that includes Denny's in Woodland Park, the Mountain Arts Festival and the Parade of Home at the Flying Horse subdivision, in addition to countless homes in the area, Spring is an artist on the move.

Spring arrived at her artistry serendipitously. “I'm self-taught,” she said.

After one graphics arts class at Pikes Peak Community College, Spring gave up the maid work to devote full time to her art.
