About the Artist:
Following graduation with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1988, Amy moved to the Four Corners region. Since then her work has reflected the wilderness areas and the wildlife & plants found there. She is an avid backcountry explorer where she finds inspiration for her fine art work. She balances her work between the slow process of linoleum block printing and the more spontaneous painting in pastel.
