About

Amy Pollien studied printmaking and industrial design at the Philadelphia College of Art with Michael Lasuchin and William Daley. “Her drawings are subtle, but if you spend a little time with them, they begin to reveal their character. Some of the most striking pieces . . .portray houses, some abandoned, some seasonal, that are being swallowed up by the land and the trees around them. They’re a visual record of nature and neglect that is at once wistful and breathtakingly beautiful,” writes Kristen Andresen of the Bangor Daily News.Since 1978 she has exhibited at the Philadelphia Sketch Club, Rutgers University, and the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, among others.  Her work is included in The Art of Maine Winter by Carl Little and Arnold Skolnick.

Amy lives on an island off the coast of Maine and keeps bees. She is represented by Dowling-Walsh Gallery in Rockland, Maine.

    Hi Amy,
    I am a pastel artist. I admire your work a lot. I am trying to approach the profession of art …professionally. I’m encountering some business issues and I’m hoping you’ll be able to answer some questions that have me staggering. Taxes! Do you have a state tax ID number? Do you file quarterly? How do you estimate what you’ll make in a years time? Where do you go with your tax questions? Do you prepare your own taxes? Do you have health insurance? Is there a group in Maine to approach to get a better rate? Where do you go with your art business questions?

    Thanks for your time,
    Nina Hartman

    Dear Amy, nice to find your website. We just hived our first package of bees and it is fun to read your blog. So far my son and I have each gotten stung once. But the bees seem happy now. We are about to go check the queen.
    Bye

    Hi Amy,
    I so very much enjoy your website and am highly entertained by your many projects. ( I thought your sea salt project was hilarious!) My husband was incredulous that anyone would go to such lengths for salt.

    Found you while looking up R who I had as a professor at USM.

    I think your work is absolutely stunning.

    Thank you for taking the time to record such interesting stuff..
