Amy Ralston is an emerging artist whose varied experience brings a richness to her sculptures’ form and content. After receiving a BA in Architecture from Wellesley College, she attended graduate school for architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. Although she has never practiced as an architect, her focus in school on the experiential nature of architecture has informed her approach to sculpture. Similarly, her work as a software developer has influenced her understanding of the ‘user’, of levels of abstraction, and of methods of communicating information. As a result of chronic illness, Ms. Ralston has decided to delay her serious pursuit of sculpture no longer. She is currently an Artist in Residence at Heron Studios in Aston, PA.
