'I like to describe my work as 'dreamspirations' where I use pieces of images I take from my photos and combine them with some of my favorite things...such as gems, pearls, feathers, clouds, abstractions and elements from my dreams to create an alternate reality.' - With each piece, be they large or small, Amy draws upon vivid imagination, a love of detail and a quirky sense of humor to create a bit of escapism for those who view her artwork. Whether it be for competitions, exhibitions, illustration, publication or commissioned work...beyond the technical expertise of her finished 'product,' you will always see that little spark of humor and dream-inspired vision woven into her work.

Amy only began creating her personal portfolio in earnest beginning in 2000 but has been a self-employed graphic designer, working in one aspect of the profession or another, for over 25+ years. Because her larger works involve so much detail, they are slow to be finished...which only allows her enough time to create 3 to 4 per year. To spur her in this renewed creative chapter, she joined several art groups: Plainfield Art League in 2007 and The Colored Pencil Society of America (National and Chicago Chapter) in 2007, to name but two. Since joining these and others, Amy has exhibited nationally, regionally and locally, winning numerous awards and accolades for her work, and has sold and shipped her work around the globe to points as far as Germany, Japan and New Zealand. She earned her CPSA Signature Status in 2013 and her CPX Signature Status in 2018.

'Please! Feel free to contact me if my work has touched you or you have questions/comments...I love getting feedback and touching base with other artists and creative people! Thank you much for coming to look at my work!'
