Artist Statement & Biography

How to communicate the subdued pleasantness of a perfect summer day, the internal quiet of a sunset, or the sound of leaves crackling underfoot?  These are experiences that we take for granted, the essence of which, if distilled, should impart the essential pleasure of that perfect light, a scent in the air, the sound of silence.  I strive to push the boundaries between photography and other art forms to communicate the inherent vibrance of the world around us.

 

An award-winning artist, Amy owns and curates Ghostwolf Gallery and is also currently represented by The Range Cafe (Bernalillo & ABQ, NM).  Skilled in post-production, she works as an artist full-time.  She shares her studio with her two dogs and husband Stefan.  The duo founded Aperture Photography, which provides a wide range of photographic services, in 2010.  Amy is actively involved in promoting the arts, currently serving as Vice-President of CSA/New Mexico Artists' Market and volunteering her social media skills to several prominent shows and galleries in central NM.
