My motto is; “Art in the form of construction is as important as construction in the form of art”.
Born in northern California, I’ve loved sewing construction (and, of course, horses). Throughout those early years, I’ve held a deep appreciation of works in oils and watercolors by both local talent and famous western artists.
My art has begun in earnest after moving to the island of Hawaii, where I’ve been fortunate to study under amazing talents of Darrel Hill and Edwin Kayton.
“After all, just how many hand-knit wool sweaters do you need in the tropics?”
Presently, Amy’s passion is painting with oils and she chooses a variety of subjects that speak to her heart, some of which are her critters. She continues to work with textiles and fiber arts and shares a life of construction with her husband, Bob, on their little place in South Kona. Her artwork is held in private collections throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe.
