Mixed Media - Visual Arts - Mosaics
71 LYNDELL ROAD, Downingtown, PA
Amy has always been involved with one art form or another, from pottery to watercolor painting but creating beautiful, original mosaics is what she loves to do most. She started out with ceramic tiles, moved on to glass which enables more intricate designs, then rocks (yes, rocks – she was a geologist in a former life) and now incorporates ceramic elements into her mosaics, a ceramic-mosaic mashup. Amy is a native of the Philadelphia suburbs, and began her career as a mosaic artist 13 years ago studying under Gina Hubler of Design Impact Studios of Miami. She continued honing her skills with award-winning mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar, best known for his brilliantly eclectic Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, as well as mosaic artists Cynthia Fisher, Laura Rendlen, Yulia Hanansen, Guilio Menossi and Rachel Sager. Amy works out of her home studio near Downingtown, PA, and teaches classes in the area. Her work has been shown in several juried art shows – Downingtown Fine Arts Festival 2106, Art in Autumn, Weaverville, NC 2015 and 2016, as well as galleries – Mala Galleria in Kennett Square, PA and Ivystone Studio in Downingtown, PA, and at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, PA.
