My name is Amy Tubbesing and this is my little studio. I'm so glad you're here!

I've never met a color I didn't like. Color makes everything more fun! Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I picked up a paintbrush and found my favorite way to recharge. I pretty much love all things Texas, but an escape to the mountains is always good for my soul. 

A blank canvas is like a road-trip adventure about to begin. I don't know what the journey holds and I'm always excited to see the end result after the last brush stroke. Art makes a blank space come alive, and it takes conversation to a new level. My goal is to share Christ's love through my art, and hopefully warm your space and heart. 

How did I get to Grace Outside the Lines? My pieces are abstract, not fitting in any structured lines. But more than that, God's grace works outside all the lines. He has pursued me from day one and while it took a while for me to surrender to His goodness, He has taken me in and called me His own. His grace gives me life.

When I'm not painting, you can find me at the Pilates studio where I teach full-time. My three nieces and nephew have my whole heart and most of the photo album on my phone. I am the oldest of three girls; my sisters are my best friends and my most treasured gifts! Weekends in-town usually involve whipping up some fresh guacamole, inviting a few of my favorite friends over and cranking up the music for a kitchen dance party!

I hope you have as much fun looking around on the site as I did creating all the pieces!
