I believe each object has its own intrinsic value. Just as we can all reinvent and rediscover ourselves, an old rusted out muffler can be transformed to represent a dog.
Amy graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA in Surface Design and Metal-smithing. 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.
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.
Amy was featured at Ciel Gallery in June 2014.
