Amy Dover’s drawings depict a dark and hidden side of nature. Using graphite pencil she renders humans and other animals in tremendous detail.
She is inspired primarily by music, poetry and folklore, resulting in recurring themes such as death, deceit and humiliation:
Her characters include cannibalistic crows, humiliated bears, and the innocence and loss of a dead sparrow.
Since 2008, Dover’s work has been exhibited in group and solo shows across the United States.
