-- Born in 1971 in San Francisco, painter Amy Nelder calls her work “Pop Trompe L’oeil.” Employing realism with precise technique and accuracy of detail, she infuses pop au courant imagery to celebrate unsung domestic moments or to convey messages of contemporary socio-political import. A trained opera singer from ages 9 – 20, she notes the musicality in her paintings, that her way of feeling color is rhythmic and lyrical. Nelder studied at the University of California at Berkeley and the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Early in her career, she was the Forensic Artist for the San Francisco Police Department and the Medical Examiner’s Office. Nelder now focuses entirely on her fine art.
