Amy Shaffer’s and Brittney Fontyn’s

Project Info

Project Description

Born and raised in Vancouver, WA. Amy Shaffer has been a developing artist since the moment she could hold a paintbrush, around the age of six. She inherited her talents from her grandmother, Sandy Webb, who has taught mixed media painting and crafts in the Vancouver area since 1965, and who Amy continues to study under.

She has sold paintings to private buyers and has recently had her art displayed at Naked Winery tasting room in Hood River.

A firm believer that painting gives people a place to escape, relax inside their own mind and create a different world with the stroke of a brush, Amy opened her own business, Lushes and Brushes. There, in her home studio, she teaches students how to paint while they enjoy a fun night out sipping wine with friends.

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Brittney Fontyn has shown artistic talent for drawing and painting at a very young age. Brittney comes from a long line of artists dating back several generations. One of her biggest influences was her grandmother, Linnell Parker, who had always prioritized art and creativity in her grandchildren’s lives.

For Brittney, art is a place that she can call home, without limitations or restrictions. Though her works are of a wide variety, her latest creations have gained popularity in the Vancouver area. She has been gifted with a nickname, Mother of Dragons, by painting her trademark baby dragons and customizing them into the theme of her clients choice. She then paints these baby dragons on rocks, canvas and even coffee mugs. The inspiration for her dragons? She is a stay at home mom with four little dragons of her own.
