Amy is an Atlanta-based artist who has spent the last 20 years experimenting with a variety of media. Her early explorations into photography and sculpture informed her passion for capturing and revealing beauty within the third dimension. Amy's favorite artist is Alexander Calder. She loves the movement of his pieces. He is a big influence in a lot of her jewelry designs.

The last ten years have found Amy crafting fabulous adornments in precious metals. A distinct characteristic of her jewelry designs is the incorporation of vibrant color tinted resin or felt. Amy finds that the fusion of metals and rich colored alternative materials create dynamic contrasts and spatial relationships that are truly unique. She says she gets so much joy from making that she wanted to share the process with others. She loves seeing her students develop their own creative style.

Amy has exhibited her jewelry at the High Museum of Art and is currently showing her work at the Decatur Gallery, Spruill Gallery and the Beehive boutique. She also participates in several Atlanta area art shows, such as the Piedmont Park Arts Festival, Inman Park Arts Festival, Indie Craft Experience and Chastain Park Arts Festival to name a few.

Amy's home is a beacon for all lost animals. She currently has 3 cats and 2 dogs, most of whom just showed up on her front porch. She once even had a flock of chickens show up! Currently the "No Vacancy" sign is on.
