Amelie Simmons is a local Long Beach artist using acrylic paint as her primary medium of choice to create representational, impressionistic, abstract, and dimensional (tactile Touch Me) paintings.
She finds inspiration locally and from her adventures while traveling. Scuba diving has given her a new perspective of the underwater world with her seascape series of paintings, while her career as a clinical laboratory scientist has provided her access to the microscopic world with her science art.
Amelie enjoys sharing her artwork with others and have people touched by not only what they see, but literally feel. She uses dimensional media in her tactile paintings that everyone can and should touch. Her dimensional (Touch Me) paintings are dedicated to the visually impaired and those that “feel” the urge to touch artwork as she does.
