Taking the raw materials life hands us and turning them into something beautiful is essential for good design. Passion needs to be first. Nothing can take its place. Amy brings energy and passion to every project she touches.
She loves to help establish, elevate and equip brands.
She never settles until the best design solution is delivered.
She thrives on understanding the nuances of each community being reached and customizes her artwork specific to its heart, mind and culture.
