Amy Jane is a full-time artist, living and working in Gauteng. She graduated from Rhodes University with a BA in Fine Arts (2009), and a PGCE (2010).
Her art practice centres around printmaking. By using water-based mediums, making her own paper, and avoiding solvents, Amy-Jane strives to maintain a low-toxic and environmentally-kind studio. Her work is imaginatively illustrative, based on interactions with living creatures and GAN (generative adversarial network); and her style is detailed, and often fairytale-esque. She enjoys creating playful work that engages with the viewer humorously or through some sort of strangeness.
In 2016, Amy-Jane co-founded The Printing Girls.
