excitement and wonder of “Amy’s world”.
Over the last few years Amy has taken the Jackson Hole fine art scene by storm and has established
herself as one of the must have artists for local collectors. Her energetic canvases and vivid

the artwork evolve and grow. I am so thankful for my God-given talents and so happy to be using
them. May my passion for following dreams come through my paintings and move you towards
