About the Artist
Born and raised in North Vancouver, BC, Amy completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in 2017 where she focused on ceramic sculpture and installation based work. Merging slip casted and wheel thrown forms, Amy creates site specific installations that explore her interests in the mechanic, organic, internal and external, as well as drawing and painting. These hybrid forms are simultaneously perverse and familiar, futile and strange, and explore ideas of growth and transformation in relation to machinery and the human body. She sees working directly on the wall as a method of bridging the gap and exploring the tension between sculpture and painting. Currently she is focused on sculptural and installation based work that combines her interests in painting, drawing, and ceramics while exploring various building techniques including slip casting and wheel throwing.
In 2017 she was accepted as a Ceramic Artist in Residence at Harbourfront Centre, Toronto where she lived and worked for two years. She currently resides in Medicine Hat, Alberta, where she continues her private studio practice while working as Studio Technician at the Shaw Centre for Contemporary Ceramics, an International Artist in Residence Program.
