About Amelia


Graphic Designer, Fine Artist and Slave to Cat and Dog


Graphic Design:

For nearly two decades (yikes!) I’ve worked as a professional graphic designer, ten of them with my freelance company Art of Amelia (formerly Amelia Niemi Design.) I began work in the wine industry in 2000 and my client list has expanded to include wineries such as Beaulieu Vineyard, Flora Springs, Luna Vineyards, Grgich Hills  and many more. See list.

Let me help you create your next brochure, point of sale materials, packaging or logo. I currently work out of my studio in the East Bay, Martinez, CA. I’d be happy to meet with you and show you my portfolio.


Fine Art:

For three years I’ve exhibited my art at the Martinez Gallery, a co-op art gallery located in Martinez, CA.

At first I felt that in order to be taken as a “serious artist”, I had to paint serious subject matter – hence landscapes. I obviously have a hard time being serious, I mean who can take swirly clouds and pink mountains seriously.

I’m reverting to the way I used to draw as a kid – cramming as many anthropomorphized critters on a page, all in a kerfuffle. (My maps are in this style). My retro pet art is a reflection of this new found (long lost?) tongue-in-cheek style. I just want to make people smile!

I work in pastels, watercolor, acrylic, digital media and jewelry.


Gimme something to paint!
