Born and raised in New York City, Amy began her career in retail, designing advertisements and catalogs. When an opportunity arose to design software manuals (!) in Paris, she didn’t waste a minute. She spent three years in the French capital, designing magazines and brochures for a small publishing company, in addition to the aforementioned software manuals.
Upon her return to New York, Amy worked at several small design firms before deciding to try her luck at a Big Corporation. Amy spent six years there, first as an art director and then promoted to design manager of corporate communications before deciding to start Brown Stone Studio. She brings experience in branding, marketing and corporate communications, and editorial design to the corporate, publishing, and nonprofit sectors.
Amy holds a BA in art history (with a minor in painting) from Syracuse University, continued her education at SVA taking several design courses, and has an MA in communication design from Pratt Institute. She is an active volunteer, member of several professional organizations, and is the creative lead on all studio projects. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and a shelter mutt.
