An award-winning artist, Amy’s process is a fusion of original photography and digital techniques to create playful, iconic images from the imagination. Her bold, vibrant, fantastical, and undeniably fun new media collages evoke a sense of wonder and irreverence.
Amy's artistic career has been extraordinary in its trajectory. Within just 11 years dedicated solely to art, she has seen her work featured at the Hubbard Museum of the American West, the University of New Mexico Popejoy Hall Benefactor’s Lounge, and has been the feature artist of many large local and national art shows; including the 27th Annual Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival. She has been named a “Local Treasure” by the Albuquerque Art Business Association, and has work installed in public buildings around the state of New Mexico, soon to include the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. Her work has also been featured in a variety of publications, donned book covers, and just made people laugh.
Skilled in graphic design and post-production, Amy owns Ghostwolf Gallery in Albuquerque Old Town, a contemporary gallery focused on highlighting the work of local artists with a truly unique vision. She is actively involved in volunteer efforts promoting the arts, having served as Vice President of the Corrales Society of Artists and currently serving as the VP of the Albuquerque Art Business Association. She also donates her considerable social media marketing skills to several arts organizations and shows, and is regularly asked to jury local art competitions.
It is an incredible gift to be able to bring a little bit of laughter and joy into people's everyday lives. Thus, elements of wonder and humor are important components of my work. And, as an artist that began as a photographer and has evolved with the genre from wet photography to the digital age, I have found myself pushed to define myself without apology as an artist with a distinct vision. The cynicism, rigidity, and banality of conventionalist ideas related to photography and the digital arts has pushed me ever further towards surrealism and whimsy. Instead of aspiring to mediocrity through the pursuit of excellence in common work, I find myself taking more chances in defiance of it. It's led me to more actively start telling stories and show people how I see the world, and to develop and utilize my own diverse set of digital techniques towards that endeavor. I strive to push the boundaries between photography and other art forms to stimulate the imagination and communicate the inherent vibrancy of the world around us.
