Amy G. Bernard is an interdisciplinary artist, living and working in the western suburbs of Chicago. Her practice is rooted in ceramics and sculpture, inspired by the history of materials and the nature of craft, drawing from the world of past art and artifact as a never ending source of inspiration.

Aspects surrounding ancient through contemporary artworks influence a new and fresh perspective which enriches her creations. Feminist art theory and philosophy construct a web of inter-connectivity between the art of prehistory to the art of today, all while empowering the feminine which has been cast aside for millennia.

Through varying media, Amy works to showcase the art of the past and the missing feminine history, working toward an awareness waiting to be uncovered.
