“It is my passion to create wearable art that will bring beauty and comfort to caregivers, babies, children, and families. In the process, I also hope to give back to my community and the world.”
I am a mother and babywearing enthusiast, whose obsession has translated into the art of weaving. I am also a veteran of the US Marine Corps. My time there as a woman shapes many of my artistic choices and endeavors, including working with other veterans, where possible, primarily women left behind physically and emotionally after their time in the service.
I support other artists through the purchase of materials such as dyed warp and weft yarns, helping the weaving community grow, often work-from-home parents. I believe Black Lives Matter and will use my voice as an artist to emphasize this truth.
Weaving is an extraordinarily intentional art with many moving parts. The wearers of my art often submit inspirational photos or collages to me to have interpreted into woven form, making each piece unique. My desire is to allow babywearers to feel powerful and glamorous while holding their babies and children close. Weaving is also beautiful, functional, and soothing in the forms of neckwear and blankets. I sincerely hope the pieces I weave will bring love, hope, and comfort to wearers for generations to come.
Amy was raised in the south and is the mother of four. She is a self-taught weaver and a lover of fiber arts.
