Amy Cutler is a contemporary artist born in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1974. Cutler is an internationally known artist and is represented by the Leslie Tonkonow Gallery in New York City. She received her BFA degree from The Cooper Union School of Art, New York, New York, in 1997, and her MFA from The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Madison, Maine, in 1999.
Cutler's drawings, paintings, and prints often focus on groups of women, dressed in Victorian style clothing, doing familiar "women's work". Using this, she creates strange narratives that play off of known fairy tales and archetypes.
