Amy Boone- McCreesh was born on Loring Air Force Base in Maine to a British mother and American father. Currently she is based in Baltimore, MD with interests in the connections between aesthetic leanings within economic and cultural status. She has a heightened visual awareness of the ways people and spaces flaunt class, taste, and access. Amy received her MFA from Towson University in Maryland, and shortly thereafter was awarded a two-year Hamiltonian Artist Fellowship in Washington, DC. Her work has been included in exhibitions across the country, notably at Dinner and Mixed Greens (NY, New York, 2020 and 2015), David B. Smith Gallery (Denver, 2021), Transmitter Gallery (Brooklyn, NY, 2015), Transformer Gallery (Washington DC (2015), Terrault in Baltimore, MD, and supported by institutional exhibitions at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, Goucher College, in Baltimore, MD and Marymount University in Alexandria, VA. Amy’s large-scale works have been acquired by the Department of State in the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, Mexico (Art in Embassies, 2013), Facebook (2019), and Capital One (2018). Her work is featured in New American Paintings (issues 106 and 118) and Handmade Life, published by Thames and Hudson (2016). Amy is also a two-time recipient of the Maryland State Arts Council individual artist award for works on paper.
In addition to her own studio practice, Amy has a committed relationship to visual arts education as well as curating and running INERTIA, a website dedicated to studio visits, artist interviews, and providing a voice for artists to create context for their work outside of critical dialogue. Amy is currently adjunct faculty at Maryland Institute College of Art.
