Amy Cohas is a botanical illustrator who uses colored pencil and watercolor to create richly detailed art that celebrates the elegance of nature. In her online shop she sells gallery quality prints of her work as well a range of goods featuring expressive details from her prints.
Amy received a BFA in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design and got her start in Boston, working late into the night illustrating children's workbooks, holiday gift wrap, and gift bags carried by a national retailer. Her day job was on the production staff of a newspaper company — coffee helped. Later came stints in advertising and printed textiles.
Amy and her husband have three daughters, and live on Long Island, New York, not far from pebbly beaches and the vineyards and rural beauty of Long Island's North Fork.
