Art Instructor (Kids and Adults)
Amy is a multidisciplinary artist and art educator originating from Louisville, Kentucky. Her artistic expertise spans from creating installations, paintings, and drawings to mixed media works and sculptures. As an art teacher, Amy strongly believes in the transformative power of the arts. Through her energetic and uplifting approach to teaching art, she aims to empower each one of her students by teaching them how to use a wide variety of art techniques and materials in order to expand their visual vocabulary while expressing themselves fully and freely.
She believes everyone should share their unique voices and stories through creative self-expression and promotes a supportive environment where every student can be their true self. Amy’s warm, accepting personality extends naturally to her teaching philosophy. Through the encouragement of experimentation and trying new things, Amy’s art class students overcome any hesitations while making art, and they turn into even greater artists while having fun!
Trained as a realistic figurative painter, Amy now creates abstract artwork inspired by the natural world that blends the realms of science, technology, and nature. She is fascinated by all things “outer space” and is even the lead visual artist on the newly selected NASA mission, Dragonfly!
Amy received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from Western Kentucky University. She pursued her Master of Fine Arts in Multidisciplinary Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Amy also earned her certificate of teaching in The College Teaching of Art from MICA. Amy has exhibited her artwork in art galleries and art museums nationally, including The Kentucky Museum, The National Academy of Sciences, The Museum of Contemporary Art Nashville, and in multiple art galleries throughout New York City.
