Amy Rae Hill paints dramatic scenes of outer space on pottery. After graduating with a BFA from Western Washington University, she united her love for science fiction and space exploration with her job at a pottery painting studio to develop her current craft. She hopes her work encourages viewers to contemplate the unknown and face change bravely.
