An award-winning artist, Amy M. Ditto's career has taken a circuitous route. Beginning with the gift of a DSLR on her 18th birthday and subsequent training in Fine Art Photography at UNM, Amy went on to earn a BA in Psychology and ultimately a PhD in Ecology. In 2010, she and her husband Stefan founded Aperture Photography, which provides commercial photographic services. Amy now works and teaches as an artist full-time. And, as an extension of her love of fine art, in 2016 she opened Ghostwolf Gallery in Albuquerque Old Town, a contemporary gallery focused on highlighting the work of local artists with a truly unique vision.
Amy's artistic process is a fusion of original photography and digital techniques to create playful, iconic images from the imagination. Her bold, vibrant, fantastical, and undeniably fun digital collages evoke a sense of wonder and irreverence and have been displayed widely around the state of New Mexico in exhibitions and galleries. She has been featured at Popejoy Hall, the Hubbard Museum of the West, was the feature artist for the 2016-2017 Placitas Artists Series, and was the poster artist for the 27th Annual Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Fair Balloon Fiesta show.
