Amy earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts – Interior Design at Iowa State University in Ames, IA. This architecturally based curriculum emphasized concept, theory, history and independent thinking.
While at ISU, Amy was introduced to two authors that continue to be the cornerstones for her interior design practice;
Christopher Alexander | Author of A Pattern Language. An architect, design theorist and professor at the University of California, Berkley.
Sarah Rossbach | Author of Interior Design with Feng Shui. Sarah’s writings sparked interest and ignited Amy’s intuition of this pseudoscience and the Chinese art of placement.
A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander
Interior Design with Feng Shui by Sarah Rossbach, first published in 1987.
