“I have always been artsy as long as I can remember. My mother has picture I drew at a very young age… I probably shouldn’t tell that they were of queens smoking cigarettes?! I can remember at ten years old turning my parents screened in porch into an art gallery and trying to sell my decoupage paperweights and paintings to the neighbors. I feel as if I have finally found my calling. This art form mixes all my loves. Repurposing my many crazy collections of all things old, metal work, my obsession with jewelry, and my smart a$$ personality all in one! I have been creating different forms of art all my life and they have culminated into this awesome form of art jewelry that I have been making since 2000. My husband, 3 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats all live in small town America. Needless to say, I have a lot of time to create my life’s passion. Not to mention artistic a.d.d. A huge thanks to all of those who supported my artistic endeavors for the past 25 years!… and a huge shout out to the amazing ART by AMY team… Here’s to another 25!”
