Welcome!

My name is Amalia and I am an artist. I create oil paintings, drawings, etchings, screen prints, jewelry, woodburnings, and handbound books. Creating art has been a consistent passion and love of mine ever since I was a young child. I try my best to spend at least two hours each day in the studio.

My work is heavily influenced by dreams, silent films, and Victorian aesthetics. I focus on creating mysterious beings engulfed in dark, melancholic atmospheres. As someone who frequently suffers from sleep paralysis, I am on a mission to illustrate what it feels like to exist within the realm of dream and reality. 




I am my best self when I am working in the studio. I get a sense of purpose when I put countless hours and effort into each project. An etching usually takes around 20-50 hours to create, not including the inking & printing process, while each oil painting takes around 100-300 hours. There is nothing more satisfying than revealing a new etching fresh off the press.

Sadly, making art is very expensive!
  • The materials needed for one oil painting: support, staple gun, staples, raw canvas, gesso, brushes, oil paints, oil medium, turpenoid, rags, gloves, palette, palette knives, an easel, brush soap, retouch varnish, varnish, wire, d-rings, etc...  
  • The materials needed for one etching: copper plate, gloves, duct tape, contact paper, pipe beveler, x-acto knife, squeegee, black sharpies, burnisher, ink, paper, brushes, sharpening stone, aqua tint, acid, rolling pin, hard ground, linseed oil, etc...

As a patron, you will help me by covering the financial cost of art materials, making each project and goal more attainable. My patrons will receive unique and personalized rewards depending on the amount given.

Thank you for stopping by to read about me and my goal as an artist. I hope you become my patron!

Sincerely,
Amalia Kouvalis
