Amy Rice is one of those "knew her when" artists—most likely to get snapped up by a savvy Anthropologie buyer and busted out as the next big thing. Her recent open studio night let us catch up with her work and covet as usual.
Pretty with underlying edge, Amy's work never fails to intrigue—whether it's in a show, a Mpls restaurant like Barbette, or better yet, on our own walls. See her main site for much more work.
She works with stencils she draws and cuts herself. Learn more about her process and inspirations and see upcoming shows at her blog.
