Welcome! My site will be updated continually as more work is finished, which has been frequently lately.
A little about me: I'm a visual artist residing in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Before returning to Pittsburgh in 2016, I lived for many years in New York City, where I studied Fine Arts at the Parsons School of Design and worked in the publishing industry.
After years of painting, I found fulfillment as an artist doing mosaics. In late 2017, I started devoting my creative time to making mosaic frames and mirrors. The tactile experience of cutting and setting the pieces and the intellectual challenge of fitting the pieces together provided me the outlet I was longing for, which painting alone never quite satisfied, even as I got more into mixed media. Artists' journeys are seldom straight, but as long as the desire is there, they will lead us to where we should be.
As you can imagine, it make take some time to get my website to where I would like it. However, you can follow me on Instagram @ amyburkeart to keep up with my most recent projects.
Feel free to leave any comments or questions through the Contact link or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. All works are available for purchase. I also am happy to make custom orders, so if you see any you like that are marked Sold or if you have a specific design in mind, let me know.
