Amy Haney was born in Omaha Nebraska in 1974. Discovering printmaking at Central High School she then studied it at the Ringling College of Art and Design (BFA 1998) and the San Francisco Art Institute (MFA 2002). She received an Art History degree from Prescott College in 2015 specifically focused on the history of printmaking. Amy has taught studio classes in the Omaha metropolitan area and is currently an instructor at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Amy frequently exhibits locally and nationally, has been published in the SGCI newsletter and her work is included in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art permanent collection. 

She enjoys the technical aspects and meditative repetitiveness found in printmaking. She likes to work on projects that are challenging in some form, such as multiple matrices or combining techniques. A printmaker at heart, Amy finds watercolor equally stimulating. Her subject matter is based on observing and studying aspects of nature then imposing her visual filter, humor or aesthetic interpretation.
