Meet the Author

Beginning with not-so-traditional print making methods (hand cut stencils and a Japanese Gocco printmaking toy), mixed-media artist Amy Rice makes original, one-of-kind pieces by employing acrylic, gouache, ink and collage. Her “canvases” range from weathered wood panels and discarded objects to antique envelopes, age-worn love letters, and found journal pages yellowed with time. Amy’s imagery, nostalgic and wistful, is largely biographical. She draws inspiration from childhood memories growing up on a Midwestern farm, the urban community in which she now lives, bicycles, street art, gardening, collective endeavors that challenge hierarchy, acts of compassion, downright silliness, and things with wings. Amy has exhibited her work in galleries throughout the United States, Canada and the U.K. She currently resides in Minneapolis, MN. Visit her online at amyrice.com and etsy.com/shop/amyriceart.
