After double majoring in Drawing and Art Education at Bowling Green State University, Amy set her sights on the mountains, animals and wide-open spaces of the West. Freedom and independence were the catalyst to her crazy dreams and wild imagination. A few years after school she found herself right at home in the Tetons under blue skies and snow tipped peaks surrounded by bison herds, golden eagles and grizzly bears.
In 2012, after two years of pursuit she was awarded the great honor of being selected as Jackson Hole’s Fall Arts Featured Artist. She was the youngest to ever be chosen at 34 years old, and the first woman and contemporary artist to be selected in almost a decade.
A year later she pulled out of all her galleries and started her own; Ringholz Studios. She decided to pursue complete artistic control so that she could be unlimited in the work and build a one-of-a-kind experience to offer her clientele when investing in her work. Ringholz Studios has been growing up alive and well for the past six years and there is no looking back, only looking forward.
“I try to put my wild heart and love of freedom into my paintings. When you place a piece of my work in your home, you have a piece of me. I want that work to enhance your life with beauty, creativity and love. I want your heart to feel open and full and your life to feel more meaningful because you get to share your days with one of my paintings.” -Amy Ringholz
