Art During Quarantine: Amy Ross Squitieri (AH Alumna, 1990)

Amy Ross Squitieri (UW–Madison Alumna, Art History, 1990) shares how she is using painting to help her cope with the current quarantine. She states:
“I paint to clear my mind and focus only on the art. Today I painted in the Japanese Etagami style which uses watercolor and ink to paint natural items —flowers, animals, etc. —in small postcard format. Adding a message with characters is part of the style. Yesterday I learned that the Chinese word for crisis combines the characters meaning “danger” and “opportunity.” That spoke to me as a way to think more positively about the current situation. I added these characters to my painting.”
Thank you Amy!
