Film and digital photographer
After discovering photography early in high school, Amy always had a camera hanging around her neck. When the time came for her to choose a college, she knew the school she attended had to have
an established photography program so she could explore her creative interests and develop her photography skills. Four years later, Amy graduated from Austin Peay State University with a bachelor of science in mathematics and a minor in photography.
While her math studies were her primary focus during college, she did not let that distract her from her learning as much as she could about black and white film and digital photography during her time at APSU. After graduating, Amy moved to Boston and completed a master of science in Mechanical Engineering and began working as a Human Factors Engineer in Concord, MA.
Throughout her educational career, Amy has continued to work on her photography. However, until recently, her often busy schedule has afforded her time to dedicate to this creative process. In an effort to refocus her energy on photography, Amy became a member of the Washington Street Art Center in the summer of 2013.
Over the past several years I have transitioned from black and white film to digital photography. The accessibility and immediacy of this medium has dramatically broadened the subject matter and environments in which I create. My work continues to explore the interrelationships between light, form, and texture. These qualities are now manifested in images that defamiliarize subject matter that I perceive to be ordinary and, therefore, has become difficult to see.
