By Amy Quigley
Originally from Rhode Island, Amy lives in South Florida with her husband, two daughters, and their Bernedoodle, Mayflower. After working as a garden designer for 20 years, she turned her artistic focus toward painting and fabric art. Inspired by the work of her late grandmother, Martha, she combines those two media, transforming original paintings into fabric, and then embellishes each finished piece by hand. She also utilizes some of Martha’s vintage fabrics and trims in her work which have been meticulously preserved, as if waiting for this moment.
