Primarily self-taught, Amy Melious combines traditional and alternative techniques, often with the addition of hand-painting, to weave an intuitive visual language of color, gesture and mood.
Raised in the Redwood forests of Northern California, nature provided a powerful source of creative inspiration, and became a touchstone for her life.
"I fell in love with photography very early in my life. I was attracted to the medium as a blend of art and science, a means of both observation and expression. I felt a strong sense that photography would be an important part of my life for a long time. That has proven to be true.
I look at photography as a livelihood. It’s not only my chosen means of support, but a way of life as well. I feel there is wisdom in nature, kindness in beauty, and growth in discovery".
