Amy is a full-time artist and illustrator in beautiful & green Portland, Oregon. She was born and raised in the Kettle Moraine woods of Wisconsin near the Mammoth Ice Age Center. She drew plants and animals, dug up fossils and went for endless forest walks among all her forest friends. Her love for nature and science led her to an art and illustration career, and to the Pacific Northwest. She has since worked with Target, Converse, Logitech, Burton Snowboards and many other fun companies. She is currently working on a very rewarding project with Seattle Children's Hospital, making a wonderful and hopeful environment for the new Building Hope expansion.

Thoughts on the Telephone process

This was a wonderful challenge... I interpreted my imagery from a given poem, which was, thankfully, full of imagery! I read it over and over until a single image kept repeating itself in my head, and that is what I relayed in the painting. I write poetry as well, so it was nice to share this connection with someone, even though I don’t know them.
