Amy Gaulin grew up in small towns throughout Alberta.  While living with her parents, she also lived amongst their collections
of antiques, trinkets, and dated items.  Being surrounded by rusted metal parts, aged wood, and their warm colours has
given Amy an affinity to capturing the stories of items often left unheard. These sensibilities are captured in the essence
of her paintings, drawings, and sculptural works.
Amy is a multidisciplinary artist, specializing in realistic portraits.  Trained as a printmaker, and previously employed as a sculptor,
Amy has also facilitated many public workshops in bookmaking, printmaking, and art therapy.  Though she has ambition in many fields,
her focus lies within using soft marks, subtle details, and muted colours through painting to vivify fading photographs and
give permanence to disappearing memories. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with distinction from the Alberta
College of Art and Design in 2012, and most recently is the recipient of the 2015 ACAD Alumni Legacy Award.  Amy currently
resides in Calgary, Alberta.
