For the past ten years Amy has used nontraditional print-making methods--including hand cut stencils and a Japanese screen printing toy called a Gocco printer--as a starting point for original mixed media pieces. She uses spray paint, acrylics, gouache, and inks, and prints on antique papers (preferring handwritten love letters, envelopes, journal pages, sheet music and maps). Her surfaces have also included one-hundred year old cedar shingles, barn boards, rusty metal, wooden and metal boxes, wooden panels and discarded cabinet doors.

Amy is most satisfied when she can make a tangible or visceral connection between the materials used and the image rendered. Her work is deeply layered, often both literally and figuratively. Her imagery--nostalgic and wistful--is largely biographical and reflective of her pensive nature. Amy is inspired by childhood memories of growing up on a Midwestern farm. She loves and is inspired by bicycles, street art, gardening, random found objects, collective endeavors that challenge hierarchy, acts of compassion, downright silliness, and things with wings.
