Amy Seller’s Artistic Mount Dora: Paint and brushstrokes bring lakeside town to life


Amy Sellers' Art Gallery is a combination of playful whimsy and seriously important good works. Photo Rori Paul

Amy Sellers is an artist. Like any artist, painting something close to her heart is important, the muse by which she is driven to create. Therefore it is little wonder that her son and her town are on her mind, and on the canvases that she creates. She honors the face of autism through the cherub-face of her son, working to spread the word of this challenge while trying to create beauty in that world, and brings to light the beauty she sees in the everyday life of Mount Dora, where the people are behind the walls and windows of their shops and businesses and they are the face of welcome one meets.

Tree Frog Art Gallery, located in the Renaissance Building on Donnelly Street, offers Amy’s ongoing show, “Memories of Mount Dora.” Discover the men behind theMount Dora Ghost Walk at play, see the familiar moment of Maggie’s Attic’s Jerome selling a bottle of wine,  enjoy the gentle moments of peace at Lakeside Inn or be surprised with the gang at Segway of Central Florida.

What a simple and yet amazing concept: introduce the people of town and what makes them tick through a painting. Perhaps no one would love the images besides their subjects or their moms, yet somehow I felt drawn in, as if capturing a moment anew as I gazed upon the faces of friends and the places we’ve come to know and love. So too will you, as you create memories around town, then see them captured here in such sweet brushstrokes and bold colors.

Choose from her new Memories of Mount Dora collection, her playful and fun ode to her son, and so many more options, new and planned. Photo Rori Paul

There is a playful side here as well. In the wake of her son’s autism, Amy has found a way to celebrate his life, embrace his challenges, and create a beautiful world in honor of the differences he sees and experiences in the wider world. What a great way for an artist to recognize these, and what a great way to help raise funds to help others with such challenges. Amy was even recognized for her book, Miss Amy’s Hurray for Rhyme, by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

Amy will be launching the gallery show of her Mount Dora memories collection on Monday, October 22nd, 2012, so do be sure to stop by for that special night. But stop in anytime to be charmed and enchanted by Amy’s work and the passionate way she shares her loves; her son and her town. Be embraced with the whimsy and grace of this Mount Dora artist.

Mount Dora Ghost Tours offer a fun and interesting
way to get to know Mount Dora. Your hosts are immortalized
in this ghostly fashion…

Or take the Ghost Tour and get spooked for real…
The Mount Dora Lighthouse is the only working Lighthouse
in the interior of Florida. It is a beloved part of the Mount Dora landscape
and a beacon to all who enjoy life on and around Lake Dora.

Pull up a bench and enjoy the view.
This is a beautiful setting for the Lighthouse…

Jerome is the face of Maggie’s Attic, the
Sommelier, who brings a wonderful selection
of wines and beers from around the world.

Ben ( and I in our promotional
photo with Jerome, following our interview for our
former Podcast, Florida Travel Cocktail.

The line from Amy’s Memories of Mount Dora collection is
like a walk through your memory’s park, rediscovering
friends and locations you will come to love.

Amy’s way of reaching out to her son who has autism
is through her art, trying to reach a playful world
that we cannot always understand.
She uses her works to inspire and make people aware
while raising money to help.

Her book was even recognized by former Governor of Florida,
Jeb Bush.

The Magnolia Inn in Mount Dora
is an historic Inn created from one of the Mount Dora
historic homes.

And like so much of Mount Dora

it is a classic…
