Amplify Arts originated from the recognition of Carleen Janlewicz artistic talent from childhood to then commercialise a desire of providing paintings to anyone that fell in love with the art to make it their own.

From 1985, Carleen Janlewicz has shown her natural aptitude in art from winning an art competition at the early age of 5. Art became the focus throughout her life and is a basis of who she is today. As her art development progressed her forte became creating contemporary abstract art which has been the style of her artwork.


The appeal of her paintings is from seamless colour compositions, techniques in creating visual balance among the use of mixed mediums and acrylics.

Amplify Arts is proud to have sold and created artwork for numerous people around the world since 2004. The love of the creating art has also been expressed through events with recent developments of art coaching for the public, through a social and fun experience in paint and sip facilitation and producing arts festivals.
