Amy Diener is a Bangkok based artist from New York. She specializes in vibrant dot
paintings inspired by the colors and patterns from her travel encounters. Her artwork
also draws influence from sacred geometry, the Fibonacci sequence, and the cosmos.
She has had a long history of battling OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and uses art
as a coping mechanism to relieve anxiety. She paints only dots in her artwork because
she finds the creative process to be very meditative. She patiently dips and drops layers
of acrylic paint onto a surface to achieve her tactile 3D dots. The process requires
extreme focus and concentration, thus inspiring her to be fully aware in the present
moment. Amy’s goal is to bring awareness and destigmatize mental health through art
and mindfulness practices. She sees herself as the gateway between her mesmerizing
paintings and the mental health community. Her paintings instill a positive and joyful
mood. She also hopes to evoke love, compassion, kindness, and inner peace through the
meditation of her healing mandalas.
She has exhibited her works worldwide including in New York, Thailand, Dubai,
Singapore, and Germany. Lastly, she has been featured in noteworthy magazines such as
the Bangkok Post and landed on the front cover of Wanderlust: Expat Life and Style
