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, an artist and designer, hails Los Angeles as her creative home but leads a nomadic life, traveling the world alongside her husband in their venture, The Sundry Productions, encompassing film, art, and fashion. Her journey commenced at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she honed her skills as a fashion designer and illustrator, eventually rising to lead designer for a contemporary dress line bringing her from living in Manhattan to Los Angeles. Fueled by a desire for adventure and a love for art, Amy and her husband embarked on globetrotting escapades. Their mission wasn't just exploration; it was a pursuit to connect with local communities and celebrate indigenous fabrics. These treasures became the foundation for Amy's unique one of a kind dresses and bespoke wedding gowns. She also played a pivotal role in helping launch an ethical fashion line alongside other designers. In 2010, Amy's life took an extraordinary turn when she and her family moved to Kenya, Africa to create a television show for children living in Nairobi's slums. Amy's creative talents shone as she crafted puppets, designed costumes, and wrote for the show alongside local filmmakers with the hope of uplifting other’s crafts and gifts. Returning to the U.S., Amy remained active in her community, but her life became increasingly nomadic. From 2012 onwards, she has explored diverse cultures while evolving her multidisciplinary art skills. Her inaugural painted collection in 2019 named “Fashion Icons” received affirmation of her new passion and has proven to be a sustainable pursuit. After 2020 Amy has focused her energy and time painting her portrait series addressing the global issue of statelessness while being on location in New Orleans, Chicago, Baton Rouge, Albuquerque, and Los Angeles. Amy's story is a peregrination of creativity, compassion, and an unyielding desire for understanding while offering a mirror to the world's complexities through the visual story of her subjects.
