Amy has been painting, drawing, and designing since childhood – even selling crayon originals door-to-door at age 5. Later in life, Amy attended Syracuse University’s Visual and Performing Arts School. There she studied Interior Design and Art History earning a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts. Studying the elements and principles – design, color, light, line, proportion, balance, etc., complemented and enhanced Amy’s natural architectural style.
Mark Rothko and Claude Monet were among the many abstract expressionists who were of strong influence. After several years working as an interior designer in Boston, Amy returned to school to further study painting and teaching at the Boston Fine Arts Museum School, earning a Masters degree. She taught art in Boston for several years and then moved back home to the Albany area.
The sale of Amy’s paintings have raised money for non-profit organizations such as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the American Red Cross. Her work has also been exhibited at several Art De Cure Galleries in the Capital District, with proceeds going to fund various medical causes.
From design to watercolor, and now oils, Amy’s work is a combination of abstract expressionistic line, light, color and emotion. Amy currently resides in Loudonville, NY, with her husband Michael and daughters Alexandra and Ella.
