Amy Martin is a graduate of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with a BA in Creative Writing and a minor in Painting. Her oil and acrylic paintings infuse color and varying brush stroke to create movement. She is inspired by the beauty all around her–the color of coffee in a cup, a blooming poppy, the angular white of a ski slope, or an airplane swooping to land on a river. Amy’s former professions include Army Black Hawk helicopter pilot and Boeing Change Specialist which fuel her passion for her many aviation and birds-eye-view paintings.
Currently, she lives and works from her home studio on Camano Island in Washington where she shows annually on the juried Camano Arts Association Studio Tour. She graduated in February 2019 from Goddard College's MFA Creative Writing Program and is working on a book length flight memoir.
