Artist Bio

Amy S. Nielsen
Core Faculty
Catfish Letter Arts School
I am a lifelong Artist from Davenport, Iowa, with a BA in Art from SAU. I love the Art of Calligraphy and studied with Fr. E.M. Catich. My artwork includes mixed media calligraphic pieces including 23K gold gilding with watercolor and pen and ink. 

Artistic design services include: calligraphy, lettering, logo design, letterhead, business card design, brochure design and production, illustration, watercolor, interior design, art instruction, sculpture and varied commercial art marketing services. 

Companies I have worked for include Hallmark Cards, Crown Advertising, Quad City Times, Lockwood Manufacturing & ePower Synergies. Teaching calligraphy is a passion as I have taught for for SAU ACCEL, and continue to teach at The FIGGE, Clinton River Arts Center, Bettendorf, IA and Moline, IL Public Libraries and other venues in the Quad City area. Inspiration for my art comes from nature. Many own my calligraphic work because they appreciate the artistic design and the message meaning something special to them in their lives.

I am a founding Board of Directors member for The Art Legacy League and a CORE FACULTY, The Catfish Letter Arts School.
