I see the world through a lens of wonder and awe. My inspiration comes from the smallest inner workings of the natural world, and I translate that inspiration into photographs, digital art, mixed media pieces, and oral and written commentary on the world as seen through my eyes. You can see my art at amyjophotoart.com.
Love of nature leads easily into life as a gardener. I garden on less than a quarter acre in an urban neighborhood. I grow a variety of vegetables and herbs and keep chickens for the eggs and the fertilizer. My goal is to turn my little urban plot into a bit of permaculture heaven.
When I’m not wearing my artist apron or my gardening clogs, I spend my days working as an educator. I am a professor at a local college and hold classes online through my own company. I am passionate about helping others find their place and their passion in this world.
