For the past 11 years Amy has been an active visual artist in cities and mountain towns coast-to-coast. From Philadelphia to San Francisco, or the north shore to the central Sierra, Amy draws inspiration from the human relationship to the natural world. Her ability to combine realism and illustrative elements while artistically using natural skin tone to her advantage has propelled her into creating a unique style all her own. She believes tattooing is a form of freedom, and she enjoys a healthy dose of freedom herself; Amy is filled with wanderlust and a wild desire to climb mountains. Literally. She climbs mountains with her hands. (And sometimes a rope.)
“To me, tattooing is a creative pathway to explore the complexity of human identity. Often I have observed that tattoos give people permission to ask questions and tell stories that could otherwise be challenging to express. When people allow themselves to experience this kind of freedom — the freedom of expression — the result is absolutely transformative. I look forward to the journey forward and can’t wait to create tattoos with you who choose to transform yourselves in subtle and powerful ways.”
