About The Artwork

There is much speculation that surrounds the woman of Julian of Norwich. Little is known about her personal life and how she ended up serving as an anchoress from a young age in the Medieval Church. Her book she authored was said to have been written under the mystic communication of over 20 visions she had received from God. Julian was a devoted servant with the earliest surviving book written by a woman author in English. Pictured with a hazelnut, representing all that was created in the world, Julian lived in the understanding that everything that exists is because of God’s love to sustain it. Julian was known to have lived in her cell her whole life and her only steadfast companion was her cat. Her feline associate has been represented by the brooch on her habit. Despite knowing nothing of the personal story of Saint Julian’s life her devotion was what she would like everyone to remember. Like most true impactful women being famous was not the goal but serving something greater than herself was more fulfilling. For Saint Julian it was communicating a love greater than she could provide herself but only found in her Creator.

Amy is an artist and designer who considers Los Angeles to be home base. Amy is partnered creatively with her husband in their business, The Sundry Productions, which encompasses film, art, and fashion. Amy lives nomadically wherever the work takes their family. Amy was trained as a fashion designer and illustrator from the Fashion Institute of Technology. In 1996 Amy worked up the ranks from Office Manager to the lead designer of a better contemporary dress line affiliated with a Fortune 500 Corporation. As time passed Amy broke out on her own in order to travel to remote destinations while backpacking with her husband with the goal in mind of purchasing indigenous fabrics from the local populations. After filling up their luggage with handmade finds Amy returned to the US and created one of a kind dresses from these treasures. Eventually Amy additionally started to create custom wedding gowns as well as helped launch an ethical fashion line with 3 other designers. In 2010 Amy and her family sold their home in Los Angeles and chased a dream and moved to Kenya, Africa in order to produce a television show for the kids that live in the slums of Nairobi. Amy created the puppets, became the costume designer, as well as became the shows writer while working alongside talented local film makers. Upon returning to the US Amy continued to organize events and was active in her community. However, without a permanent home in Los Angeles Amy has been able to move around freely with her husband while he works on location. From 2016 to the present Amy has been traveling the globe, meeting amazing people, immersing herself in other’s culture, and creating art along the way. It is an amazing time in Amy’s life where she has found an appreciation to create something more significant and long lasting in art and design. Not only has Amy sold 6 paintings in her first collection that launched at the end of 2019 but she is currently working on two commercial commissions that will be on view at the end of 2020. Amy is currently doing historical research to paint her next collection of women and will be pursuing the execution of this next series in the Spring of 2020
