Bio & Statement
My work is a representation of my eclectic personal interests and style, and a reflection of the urban landscape in which I live. My work is informed by a love of pattern, texture and color; as such, I choose materials like fabric, handmade paper, and paint. I explore folk art sensibilities, and include a twist in my pieces that refers to environmental issues. My art is intended to biodegrade over time, having already been fabricated from repurposed raw materials. My most ambitious series involves the individual properties of various adhesives and discarded papers or fabrics.
Amy has degrees in design, fine arts and educational technology. Her artwork is in The Brooklyn Art Library and Visions in New York City as well as numerous private collections. She is also the recipient of a “Promise Award” from the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey.
Experience as a seamstress and an educational technologist enthusiast are drawn into her artistic disciplines. Utilizing her design skills she has collaborated with others in art projects, curating art shows, teaching, visual merchandising and jewelry making.
