Amy’s passion for classical art and music has remained her true pursuit. Her love for music placed her in multiple musical roles at the Majestic Theater in West Springfield, MA. In 2019, Amy released her debut album titled; “bigger than me,” a collection of original rock ballads. “Bigger than me” encompasses a collection of stories that express things outside our control, how we embrace, respond and grow from these experiences.”
Amy describes painting and music; as “expressive art forms that allow the artist to provoke feeling, engage the viewer/listener and share ideas.” “My passion for both art and music aim at revealing the beauty found in nature and humanity.”
In 2011, Amy founded ArtSong, LLC, as an arts enrichment company, designed to further expand her passion and commitment to art, education and mentorship in our local community.
