Amy Cohas is an abstract artist who blends handmade and digital techniques, creating work that is a lyrical exploration of color and atmosphere. In her online shops she sells gallery quality prints of her art as well a range of other goods featuring expressive details from those 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 painting spot illustrations for children's educational workbooks and designing holiday gift wrap. Her day job was on the production staff of a newspaper company — coffee helped. Later came stints in advertising and printed textiles.
Amy, her husband, and their three daughters, have lived in New York City, London, and Hong Kong. They are glad to have settled in her hometown on Long Island, New York, not far from pebbly beaches and the vineyards and rural beauty of Long Island's North Fork.
