Since the first grade when she was asked to draw a classmate, Amy has felt compelled to draw faces. Growing up in a small town in southern VT, Amy’s room was wallpapered with drawings of people. Through college in Boston and two decades of traveling and raising a daughter, drawing portraits was the one passion that never faded. Over time she has discovered that what interests her most in a portrait is capturing moments of pure joy and love. Working with a client’s own photos allows her to find candid images full of personality and honesty that reflect the connection between the client and the subject better than a formal sitting ever could.
