Boston-based artist Amy Ross was a religious studies major at Connecticut College and earned a Master’s in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School before enrolling at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Ross uses charcoal, graphite, watercolor, collage, and walnut ink to produce works on paper as well as site-specific wall murals. Ross' work is fueled by a lifelong interest in folklore and mythology and a deep reverence for the natural world. In the studio, she looks at flora and fauna through the lens of story and imagination.
Ross has had numerous solo exhibitions in galleries throughout the country, and recently showed her work in a group exhibition at Union College in Schenectady, NY. Ross was a featured artist in Watercolor: Paintings by Contemporary Artists (Chronicle Books, 2013) and was included in Contemporary Art of Nature: Mammals (Schiffer, 2015). Her work is in private and public collections nationwide, including the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Fidelity Investments, Wellington Management, and Simmons College.
