Amy graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA in Surface Design and Metalsmithing.  She has worked as a commercial artist for York Wallcoverings, Hallmark Cards, and Springs Industries.  Amy has also been welding and forging iron for over 20 years.

“I believe each object has its own intrinsic value.  Just as we can all reinvent and rediscover ourselves, and old rusted out muffler can be transformed to represent a dog.”

Because she creates “found object” art, when Amy is not stopping her car on the side of the road to “re-purpose” an old muffler, she can be found at one of the local scrap yards in North and South Carolina.
