Trained as a fluid dynamics mechanical engineer, Amy Lee Segami draws on her physics knowledge and Asian heritage to create her own artistic style. Not only did she revive but also transformed a nearly lost art into a contemporary medium. Using water as canvas, she creates works that break historical boundaries of art and expand technological limitations by redefining their expression. Her paintings are about the essence of human experience and its relationship to the universe. They have won numerous awards since 1989. She has received many honors and awards for her extraordinary ability to bring art and science together.
Fermilab, America’s particle physics and accelerator laboratory, invited her to have a one-person exhibit. In addition to many private collections worldwide, her works are in the permanent collection of the Museum of New Mexico in Santa Fe and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution in New York.
