Amy Ferguson

Amy Ferguson, owner and creator of Printer & Press, graduated in 2015 with a B.F.A. in illustration from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan.  Since officially starting Printer & Press in 2016, Amy has been fully self-employed, and dedicates every waking moment to her work.  Amy participates in over 20 Art Fairs per year, mostly in Michigan, but is starting to expand slowly to shows out of state.  Amy currently lives in Royal Oak Michigan, yet her spirit lives in the Leelanau peninsula in Northern Michigan.  Every summer of her life she has spent at her family cabin on Little Traverse Lake – swimming, hiking with her goldendoodle Yogi, and helping ride all the horses on her aunt’s farm. Almost all prints are signed A.Marie instead of Amy.  This is in tribute to her grandmother Mimi, who always supported her and would have loved to be here to see Amy pursue her dream of being a successful artist.
