Born to travel, Amy Fetzer started her life in upstate New York and has lived in Dublin, Ireland, Arizona, and now in Raleigh. Soapstone’s new Artist in Residence is euphoric about sharing, unpacking, and connecting with others about how the process of art making, in response to God’s Word, is another beautiful way to create a relationship with God.
In this new role, Amy desires to grow our awareness and appreciation for how God speaks to us through art and art making. Amy feels she was called to connect all of us to the very sincere, viscerally alive voice recognized when one invites God to the time spent experiencing art and art making. She faithfully believes that God will provide what should be in the experience.
If she wasn’t doing this job today, Amy would love to be a cognitive scientist with an emphasis on art making. A dream trip would be to study the works in the Sistine Chapel in person.
She holds a BS degree in Packaging Science from RIT, Rochester, NY and a BFA in Studio Arts from Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY.Â HerÂ husband, Brian, is her biggest advocate and they have three amazing children whom they love to the nth degree.
