About Amy

amypaintingLab tech by day – artist by night, Amy is like a superhero with amazing powers (Looks good in hats!) and a secret identity, complete with lab coat and glasses.

She’s produced cartoons and artwork for the Official Star Wars Kids magazine, Starwars.com, Star Wars Insider, a few comics in publications by Radio Comix and sketch cards for Topps, Cryptozioic, Perna Studios and Strictly Ink. When ┬ánot drawing stuff for other people, she draws really cute stuff like polar bears. And her brother riding fluffy unicorns.

In non artsy but equally awesome news, Amy loves volunteering with kids, including hosting ‘How to Draw’ sessions at various conventions and a brief, but fulfilling, stint as a Girl Guide leader that earned her the nickname of ‘Crafty Kitty’.

She loves having the opportunity to be a good role model for kids.While she doesn’t have any kids, she has two cats named Ichabod and Poppy and a gaggle of nieces plus one nephew. Everyone in Amy’s family shares the same favourite My Little Pony – Applejack.

Where is Amy nowadays? Still in Canada. Because Canada is awesome.
