Today I am excited to share my interview with Amy Lincoln! I met up with Amy in Queens, NY where she lives/works and I felt like I was sitting down with a good friend even though I had never met her. I love that this interview keeps it really real because Amy has a 4mth old baby and a 4 year old. This is the place where she creates, paints and has her family and I love that you can hear it in the interview. We talk about how she came to the work she is making, working with Urban Outfitters, her murals in two Starbucks in NYC, her involvement in the arts community and her advice to artists.
Amy received an MFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, and a BA in Studio Art from the University of California, Davis. Lincoln moved to New York in 2006 upon receiving a Swing Space residency from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. She has also participated in residencies at the Inside Out Art Museum in Beijing as well as Wave Hill in the Bronx. Lincoln grew up in the quiet, tree-lined suburbs of Portland, Oregon. Today she lives in Glendale, Queens with her husband, artist Kevin Curran, and their daughter Fiona.
