Amy Hintze graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor of fine arts degree in illustration. She loves figure drawing in several different media. Her favorite are watercolor and charcoal. She loves to employ a whimsical pen and watercolor style in her children’s book illustration, while using a more realistic approach for historical depictions. In addition to drawing and painting for books and magazines, Amy is pursuing a degree in motherhood, with three wonderful boys and two adorable girls. She has also enjoyed illustrating the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's Music and the Spoken Word broadcast since 2007. In her nonexistent spare time she enjoys being in the outdoors, listening to music, yoga, teaching art, and spending quality time with her wonderfully supportive husband, Brian. Amy currently resides with her rambunctious family in Lindon, Utah. See more of her artwork at amyhintzeart.blogspot.com.
