Audrey Off

Artist Statement:

Audrey Off was born in Sturgeon Bay, the county seat of beautiful Door County. Her art reflects the profound influence of water and nature. She resides on the family farm, a stone’s throw from the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal.

At an early age, Audrey showed great interest in drawing and painting, making art her concentration through high school and college. She attended the University of Wisconsin and graduated with a degree in Communication and Visual Arts. During this time her painting style emerged which can described as imaginative realism. Having the freedom to experiment with many art forms, Audrey works in watercolor, acrylics, oils and mixed-media. She has proficiency in graphic arts such as, lithography, intaglio, photography, and serigraphy. For a time she also worked as a silversmith and glass jeweler. One of the ways she satisfies her desire to work in three dimensions is her technique of using found objects to build up a sculptural relief image that has a “super real” look. Never one to be a formula painter, Audrey chooses the medium to best suit her artistic expression.

On the technical side, Audrey has been long established as an expert custom framer and gallery coordinator. In 2002 when she opened her own Door County gallery on Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay, AMO Gallery & Framery was born. When the time came to break into the print market, she decided the best approach was to keep full control of the entire process and do the printing herself. AMO Publishing was the result. Her originals are digitally scanned and printed using state-of-the-art equipment including Epson professional wide-format printers. Intricate details and subtle textures are faithfully reproduced using archival inks, canvas and paper for the longevity of the fine art prints.
