Hello I am Amethyst but you can call me Amy.  I grew up in the beautiful state of Hawaii on the Big Island where my passion for art and nature began. From the moment I could hold a crayon, I was drawing on the walls and knew I wanted to be an artist.  Nature is my number one inspiration and when I am not designing you can find me out on a trail staring (and likely taking pictures of) at plants, flowers, and bugs I am here to make your life easier!  I love learning the smallest details of a project and applying each of those to the big picture.  Check out my resume below and send me a message if you'd like to work together.
