About the Author: Amy Clarke Moore

Born in 1969 in Boulder, Colorado—the daughter of a professor of language acquisition and a watercolor artist—Amy grew up in a nurturing environment of literature and visual arts. Her work is born out of a passionate interest in fairytales, myths, and art.

Amy started beading in 1998 to complete a staff project for Beadwork magazine, and she was hooked from that moment on. She enjoys the process of stitching the beads to cloth. Each bead is like a thought, and the spiral path of her beadwork is like the passage of time, with each moment building on the next until an image emerges.

Amy is the editor of Spin-Off magazine published by Interweave Press in Loveland, Colorado. She earned her B.A. from Cornell College in Iowa in 1991, majoring in Spanish, Latin American Studies, and Art. In 1997 she earned her M.F.A. in Fibers from Colorado State University’s Art department. She wrote Beaded Embellishment: Techniques and Designs for Embroidering on Cloth with Robin Atkins, which was published by Interweave Press in 2002.

Recently and happily married, she changed her name from Amy C. Clarke to Amy Clarke Moore.
