Amy Silberkleit is an artist in the Northern Catskills. Her work is based on the forests, mountains, roads, trails and natural objects found near her home. The extraordinary beauty of the region, the variety of plants, forms and textures, the dramatic changes from season to season are an inexhaustible source of subjects for her work.  She draws detailed landscapes on limestone blocks and hand-prints limited editions in her lithography studio. The tonal range made possible by the lithography stone’s fine texture lends itself perfectly to highly detailed representational drawings. In each piece, she tries to capture a moment in time while showing the effect of light, water and temperature on different elements in the landscape. Her intention is to draw the viewer in; to find a place in the landscape and observe the beauty of the natural world. An avid hiker, she particularly enjoys walking through the forest in winter. Without leaves and undergrowth, covered in snow, the contours of the land are revealed. The tones and textures of the landscape stand out when they aren’t overwhelmed by the colors of other seasons.

Amy has a B.A. in printmaking and a Certificate in Natural Science Art and Illustration from the New York Botanical Gardens. Her drawings and prints have been exhibited in juried shows, galleries and museums.  Amy is a member of the Society of American Graphic Artists and an Active Member of The Woodstock Artists Association.
