Drawn & Quarterly published Dirty Dishes, a book of her paintings, sculptures and drawings in 2009.

Amy Lockhart received her MFA from the University of Guelph in 2013 and is currently Assistant Professor, Animation, at the School of Cinematic Arts, Depaul College of Computing and Digital Media, Chicago.

About her work she says “I’m interested in the feminine because it has a power for me. Feminine is often seen as shallow, weak, passive, easily consumed. But it’s not . . . True strength is vulnerability and on the flip side niceness/pleasantness can be quite sinister.”(1)
