Amy Greenan was born in 1970, and raised in the exburbs of Buffalo, NY. She studied at SUNY Purchase (BFA, 1993), and the University at Buffalo (MFA, 2007). Her first post-graduate solo show in 2009, part of the TopSpin Series introducing emerging artists at Niagara University’s Castellani Art Museum, brought her to the attention of serious collectors and institutions.
Her work has since been shown internationally, and has been accessioned into the permanent collections of the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, NY, the Gibson Art Gallery at SUNY Potsdam, and the Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, KS.
Greenan is a recipient of the John Hartigan Memorial Painting Scholarship for the Ox-Bow artist residency, Saugatuck, MI (2011) as well as several NYFA SOS grants (2008–2011). She lives and works in Niagara Falls, NY.
She is represented by Uprise Art and works with Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery, both in New York City.
