ABOUT THE ARTIST

Hi there!

 

I'm Chris Ams, a multi-disciplinary artist and illustrator from Michigan, currently based in Beacon, NY.

I specialize in book illustration, poster design, and entertainment art, but my awe of the natural world and the celebration of the creative spirit are the embers that ignite and inspire me the most. I love to cross boundaries and genres through the use of both traditional and digital techniques, while maintaining a consistent focus on underlying narrative, aesthetic detail, and emotional impact.

Regardless of the medium used, I always feel the most at home when I'm exploring, making things, and breathing life into ideas in ways that excite and inspire my clients and their fans.

What can we make together?
