We have been avid fans of Amelie Mancini for a long time. Some of us were first introduced to her early baseball work, Left Field Cards, while for the rest, it was love at first sight during a recent Renegade Fair. During our last visit to New York, we had the opportunity to stop by Amelie’s studio in Ridgewood, Queens. The brightly colored paintings, rustic setting, and perfect light made for a picturesque afternoon. We took far too many photos, and made secret plans to move in without Amelie’s permission. Take a look at our visual journal and interview with Amelie!
When/Why did you start working in this particular craft?
I went to school for fine arts and design in France, and always loved both practices. What I find most interesting is the many ways in which art can be incorporated into our everyday lives and our homes. I started off as a painter but eventually found that making things that will be used everyday was a great way to bring my art into people’s daily lives. I started printing on fabric a few years ago to create home goods and accessories and hope to keep widening the collection in the future.
