Women of the West: Amanda Heimbuch

May 10 @ 10:00 am - June 29 @ 5:00 pm

Amanda, known by friends and art followers as Mandy, is a 39 year old artist, photographer, mother and adventurer. She is also the owner of Country Girl Clay in Glendive, where she sells her hand-thrown pottery, paintings, and prints.

Mandy grew up on a farm near the river in Eastern Montana where she spent countless hours outside playing in the mud, hunting for “beautiful” rocks, loving on animals and a lot of wandering around. She has a restless spirit that led her to an unforgettable summer in New York state following her first year of college and many other countless road trips, which have since led her back home to Glendive, Montana, where she lives in a cozy little house with very confident 14 year old and 4 year old studio bosses.

Mandy loves to create. She has an addiction for anything that can be fixed, painted or repurposed into something beautiful to enjoy. She tries to incorporate these things in her art; recycling scrap metal to make metal and clay garden sculptures, using scraps of paper to collage a background for her paintings, or finding that “treasure” in the dumpster to use as a display shelf for a show are all features of her artworks. Her main medium is clay, but Mandy is also passionate about painting. Currently both bodies of work reflect a very vibrant palette of various shades of turquoise, purple, green and blue. These colors reflect all the landscapes of Montana from east to west, from the sky as far as you can see to the mountains, rivers and night skies.

The Women of the West series is mixed media, featuring silkscreened photography of strong women of the West and acrylic spray paint on canvas. All items are beautifully framed for display in your home, office, or barn. The colors of the West are especially vibrant when they catch natural light.
