About Amy

Amy is a former architecture + design magazine editor who is infatuated with art and illustration; especially the meeting between the two. She has given Etsy talks on creativity and on looking at things with fresh eyes — whether it’s art or business. Her mind runs a mile a minute with ideas, and she would love to let others tap into it! Everyone would pick up a pencil and just start – hence the collaboration with wonderful teacher Jamie Shelman for the Pikaland Bootcamp series to encourage artists & illustrators out there to make their mark in the world!
