As a self-taught artist, I believe and create from a place of "anything is fair game" with my ideas of what can become a piece of art. From found materials and objects bought at estate sales and thrift stores, to more "traditional" paintings and illustrations, I let my imagination connect with the medium.
Amy's work was selected for the “PEOPLE” group exhibition at FRIEDA (June 2022 – August 2022).
