About Amy Lynn Bumpus

My creative process manifests from an interest in cultural anthropology and our place in Earth's evolution. We are in a time of extreme change from the climate crisis to acknowledgement of racial disparity, political movements and global responsibility; all issues that will determine life going forward. My current work speaks to naming issues but also
calls for solutions. Though we have undoubtedly had the deepest influence on
our planet, we are part of the Earth’s process, not separate from it. The questions I seek answers to are what do we want our role to be and how do we want to affect the story?

Currently, I create my images by drawing with paper. I use old National Geographic and Life magazines as my paper source (pre-1960).

Much of my art speaks to our environment and our place in it. We hold a unique position in that we, currently, have the most influence on the evolution of our planet going forward. That, automatically, puts us in a position of stewardship. However, we have been failing. In fact, we have been alarmingly destructive. Our mindset has been one of being separate from nature rather than a part of it. Now is the time to change trajectory and find ways to support ecosystems.

We have a symbiotic relationship with trees.  They help us out and we reciprocate.  All living beings are under one roof so to speak.  And, it serves us all to create an equal balance.
