Amy was born in Terre Haute, IN
And earned her MFA Indiana State University. She is a member of Midwest Paint Group and currently

She has been painting in earnest for about ten years now. She says, “I am open to all kinds of ideas about painting, but the approach that has seduced me now is grounded in the experience of perception and “slow looking.”I find it amazing that I can paint from the same still life every day for weeks and still find new and interesting relationships in the forms and color space.” For more information you can visit her website at: http://www.amymaclennan.com
