About the Artist
Trained in the scientific method, the dissection of frogs, and philosophy as a child, Amelia nevertheless had difficulty rationalizing her experience with day to day life. She turned to fiction, devouring books by the armful at a young age. Finding that she needed an outlet for her wild imagination she started by making pictures of dreams. Amelia now strives to create an ordered comparison of fiction and reality by systematically destroying/altering books. In addition, she is a digital retoucher and illustrator, deft in Photoshop manipulations, precise color correction, workflow management, and making stories come to life.
Raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Amelia received a BFA in Photographic Illustration from R.I.T. in Rochester, New York before relocating to Chicago, and more recently to Pittsburgh. She is currently working as a retoucher and illustrator while learning the ins-and-outs of tunnel books.
