Amy Richards is an artist/illustrator living and working in Raleigh, North Carolina. She grew up in Central California and Ohio and graduated from Kent State University in 2004 with a B.A. in Art Education. Teaching brought her to North Carolina in 2004 where she has worked as an art teacher, nanny, and pre-school teacher. She’s fallen in love with the art, culture and nature of North Carolina and considers it her forever home.
Her artwork is strongly based in illustration. She loves creating coloring books and activity pages for children and has recently written and illustrated her first children’s book titled, Buddy Worried. Along with pen and ink drawings, she enjoy using watercolor and embroidery to execute my illustrations.
