The sources of Amy's work are textures, patterns, and grids. She looks for forms that can be repeated to create a pattern when they are joined. Her work tries to capture the essence of an experience or an image she has seen. Amy often looks to the natural world for inspiration. She is fascinated by the flow of water, the organization of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed. Aerial views of our landscape can also be compelling; it is interesting how the organization of our landscape becomes quilt-like when viewed from above.
