I am a self-taught artist and former museum curator living in Maplewood, New Jersey.  In 2016 I dusted off my high school set of Marabu watercolors and began painting as a way to de-stress. Most of my paintings are executed without preliminary drawings. I rarely work out a composition in advance and instead let it develop as I paint. In this way, a painting becomes a puzzle as I figure out the best color and placement of every element I was encouraged early on to make my watercolor artwork for sale, and so I created


In 202o I began adding my fiber art projects to my website under the name Be Brave Textiles by Amy Zorn Art. I have been a fiber artist for decades and have a large collection of yarn, threads, vintage fabrics, buttons, ribbons and embroidered items from which I draw upon to make practical accessories and decorations. Textile art and design is in my blood: my mother and both of my grandmothers all were talented fiber artists.
