Amy Livingstone, MA is an interdisciplinary artist and sacred activist. She began drawing at a young age while growing up in New Hampshire and completed undergraduate studies in fine art. Later, she discovered figurative sculpture through classes at the Pacific NW College of Art and studied at Hipbone Studio in Portland, Oregon while maintaining a thriving graphic design business. In 2001, after a spiritual awakening that unfolded over a long period of grieving, she answered her soul calling to work professionally as an artist. In 2003, Amy founded Sacred Art Studio after a transformative ten-day training with environmentalist Joanna Macy and dedicates her work to the healing of the earth.

Drawing inspiration from all our spiritual traditions and the ancient knowledge of our earth-honoring ancestors, Amy’s paintings reveal our interconnectedness in the web of creation and the holiness of the living earth. Her paintings and sculptures reside in many private collections, have been exhibited around the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, and North Carolina and featured in regional and international publications. In 2017, Amy completed two large-scale paintings for Providence St. Vincent Hospital’s interfaith prayer room and has created numerous works on commission including personal Soul Symbol Mandalas. In 2015, she received the Honorable Mention Award from Concordia University and the Oregon Society of Artists for her painting Primordial Womb.

Over the past decade, she has created ecologically-based art installations that have been exhibited at faith-based communities, sustainability conferences and events, and Portland Community College (Oregon) to raise awareness around the ecological crisis, climate change, and endangered species.

Born of the wisdom gleaned from her own grieving process and eight years facilitating grieving children at The Dougy Center, Amy supports individuals in honoring their grief—personally and ecologically—and reclaiming creativity as a healing and spiritual practice in her arts and nature-based workshops. These circles offer practices to support health and well-being. Amy is a certified Spiritual Director and studied Arts in Health in the graduate program at the University of Florida in 2020 (prior to Covid). She has been invited to speak by local communities about her grief journey and has presented at the American Academy of Religion Conference (PNW Chapter) and the Parliament of the World’s Religions around the interrelationship between art, religion, and the ecological crisis.

Holding undergraduate degrees in both fine art and advertising communications, Amy was awarded her Masters degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Spiritual Traditions and Ethics with honors from Marylhurst University in 2007. Her thesis Opening to the Midst of Life: A Psychotheological Approach to the Four Paths of Creation Spirituality explores the environmental crisis within a psychological and theological framework (available at
