Since AMY BOWLES landed in Toronto in 1999, she has kept busy as a songwriter, visual artist, actor and performer. Growing up in the enchanted hills of Somerset, UK, under the watchful eye of toads and gargoyles, Amy studied ceramic design at Cardiff College of Art and Design. She currently sings in the progressive rock group Hollow Earth and is a former member of both Pony Da Look and Permafrown. She is represented by Paul Petro Contemporary Art Gallery, where she has had several solo exhibitions. Amy looks forward to performing an original selection of "dark ditties" with the musical assistance of Christopher Norman at the Box Salon this autumn.
