Amy Crews says she is fulfilling her childhood dream working
as a full time Artist. Growing up in Atlanta she cultivated her
talents and now enjoys art as a means to stay at home with her
children. Nature is a common theme in Amy’s work. She works
from her own photography or from still-life arrangements in her
studio. Oil is her preferred medium. Recent honors include works
selected for the 2006 HGTV Dream Home as well as being a featured
artist in the catalogs of Southern Living At HOME. Amy
and her husband Matt live in Birmingham with their two children,

I’d like to introduce you to “Fin”. My
family and I grew quite attached to this big fish when I
painted him. He was the best pet we ever had and the basement
seems empty without him. The sticks design and idea was
inspired by the many bird nests that I’ve painted.
