Amy uses traditional printing methods to create artwork which is often inspired by folklore, mythology and the natural world.
Originally from Huddersfield, after graduating with a degree in Illustration and Animation from Loughborough University Amy returned to Yorkshire and continued to experiment with technique, materials and design. She now makes and sells art prints and products at various art fairs, exhibitions and independent retail spots in the north of England.
Working from her home studio in Kirkstall, each design begins as a pencil drawing which is then transferred onto lino before being carved and printed. This hands on process means every piece is unique.
