Short Stories by Amy Burczyk
Amy Burczyk says, “I am a kid, Mother, Grandmother, Artist, Interior Designer (in that order). With a degree in Interior Design and an “almost” degree in Fine Arts from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee Wisconsin. I ran away to Wonderland, fell down a rabbit hole and ended up in Lynchburg Virginia. My art reflects my approach to life: a childlike sense of wonder, what if and defense. I use whimsey – animals, rhymes, songs, and nonsense to cope with ‘adult’ issues, much the way children have for centuries. My art may not match your sofa, but I hope it makes you think and entertains.”
The exhibit is in the Centre Gallery.
