about

A Boston area 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 exhibited and screened nationally and internationally, and she has participated in residency programs in California, Colorado, and New York.

Amy’s work is grounded in environmental concerns, local economies, community and language. Her studio is the outdoors. Along with sensory stimulation and wonderment imprinted, closely following up is the peril of climate change, and the ache of that knowledge embodied. Growing up outside the Cleveland area in the Rust Belt, familial ties worked in the food industry, manufacturing, dairy farming, feed mills, coal mines and paper mills in rural Southern Ohio down to the edges of Appalachia. Those roots impacted her experience of landscape, environmental issues related to pollution and climate change, and the struggles for use and conservation.

Along with her art practice, Amy is currently working at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, as the group administrator for two research labs focused on water and air pollution, climate change, and clean energy development and storage.

Making art because it is “itchy”, she continues to challenge her working methods and ongoing practice, medium, tools, discovery through experiment and chance, intuition and actions. The pleasures of inquisitive searching, relentless research, a good adventure and a great story, gain momentum.

Graduated from Tufts University, Medford and University of California, Irvine.
