Amy graduated from Marymount Manhattan College with a B.A. in Art History. She started her career in NYC and later relocated to PA with her husband and children. Settling in Chester County, she continued studying art at the Wayne Art Center and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. This instruction opened doors to a career in art education.
