Amy Lind grew up in the Chicagoland area, and recently moved to Savannah from California. She obtained her B.F.A. from SCAD and obtained additional instruction from the Florence Academy of Art and the Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier. Her artwork has been featured on the covers of Art Calendar magazine (May 2010) and American Art Collector (December 2010), and she was named the "Artist to Watch: the Editor's Choice for Up-and-Coming Talent" by Southwest Art magazine. Lind's work hangs around the world in both public and private collections. On top of gallery work, she is sought out by many for her uncanny ability to capture the likeness and essence of those she paints. Her paintings can now be found published in a Penguin children's book entitled, "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On: Things About Me."
