Thoughts on Art, Inspiration, Creativity and Spirit

Amy’s Bio

“I believe we are all inherently creative. In each of us lies a talent waiting to be released.”

Amy A. Crawley is a mixed media artist who creates art that is inspired by the spirit of ancient cultures, nature, and her travels around the world.  Her work can be found across the country in small galleries and in private collections.

Amy has exhibited her work with the Bolton Artisans Guild and the Merrimack Valley Artisans, at the Peabody Historical Society Museum and the Fitchburg Art Museum (FAM); in the Art House Co-op, and the Women’s Caucus for Art Artwaves International Sustaining Our Environment Project.

She received an Honorable Mention for her sculpture “Darwin Explores” at the FAM’s  76th Annual  Regional Exhibit of Art and Craft. Amy also received First Place and Honorable Mention Awards for work exhibited in the National Polymer Clay Guild’s Progress and Possibilities International Juried Exhibit. Her work has been featured in The Crafts Report and in the Boston Globe.

In the fall of 2010, Amy’s mixed media artwork appeared in two books, “Four-Word Self-Help” and “Creative is a Verb” both by author Patti Digh. In 2011, Amy’s artwork appeared in Jennifer Lee’s book, “The Right Brain Business Plan-A Creative, Visual Map for Success.”

Amy has studied with several pioneers in the field of polymer clay, including Kathleen Dustin, Gwen Gibson, Nan Roche, and Cynthia Toops.  Amy’s path to art was not linear.  She has a B.A. and M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology and a Certificate in Technical Communication.

Amy currently lives in central Massachusetts, in a town known for its rolling hills and apple orchards; a winery, and preservation of the environment.
