Amy Zwikel Studio is a Chicago based art and design studio founded by Amy Zwikel. Amy's mission is to cultivate her creative skills through material exploration and experimentation in order to provide unique, handmade items that are different from any other artist. Currently Amy is focusing on macrame and creating handmade macrame artwork but she also loves mixed media and painting.

Amy was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, but loves to travel and experience the globe's vast cultural landscape. She currently lives in Chicago's bustling Streeterville neighborhood. 

Amy earned her BFA in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in 2007 and went on to become an Art Director at a midsize Chicago marketing agency. Continuing to broaden her artistic reach, Amy earned an MAT in Art Education from Columbia College Chicago in 2011. Amy has 5 years under her belt teaching art, ceramics and photography at a suburban high school. This year, Amy is on sabbatical from teaching in order to establish herself as a creative entrepreneur. To see her new collection of hand dyed macrame decor click here.
