A Boston-based artist, producing video art for projection, installation and online, Amy has lived and worked extensively in Boston, Cambridge, Long Beach and Los Angeles. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, and she has participated in residency programs in California, Colorado, and New York. She is a member of Kingston Gallery Associates, Boston.

Amy’s work is grounded in environmental concerns, community and language. Her latest projects are fueled by a sense of urgency related to water issues, specifically coastal flood zones and rising sea levels. Her work resides within the natural world; along with sensory stimulation and deep wonderment, following closely is the sense of perilous climate change and ecological grief. Amy grew up outside Cleveland, with family ties working in farming, food industry, mills, and coal mines in rural Southern Ohio to the edges of Appalachia. Those roots impacted her experience of landscape and environmental issues such as pollution and climate change, and the multilayered struggles between land use and conservation. Along with examining these issues in her art practice, she works at Massachusetts Institute of Technology as the group administrator for two research labs focused on air and water pollution, climate change, and clean energy development and storage. She continuously develops her art practice, supported by relentless research, discovery by experiment, and the pleasure of inquisitive searching.
