FROM KOLAJ #23
Nutley, New Jersey, USA
Amy Tingle has been a maker since she can remember. In 2010, sensing a need in her community to make creative expression more accessible, Amy founded BraveGirlsArt, which has since been folded into The Creativity Caravan, a mobile creativity business she co-founded in 2013 with her partner, Maya Stein, which emphasizes self-empowerment, sharing ideas, and finding common ground through creative expression. Her work has been shown on both coasts of the U.S. In 2015, she published Strange Diary, or How to Make a Collage. She lives in Nutley, New Jersey.
A portfolio of her work appears in Kolaj #23.
Her artwork is a strange visual diary where she muses about motherhood and the feminist political landscape using everything from paint chips to broken skateboard decks and paper bags.
