Amy Leigh Cutler is the author of “Orange Juice and Rooftops”, “American Woman”, and “Writing: The Pleasure, Process, and Pain of a Relationship”.  In college she worked briefly with the United States Secret Service, and has found herself in many bizarre and unrelated situations since. She is the host and founder of “Making It”, a video series about life as an artist in New York, and a photojournalist for “The Basics” magazine.

When she isn’t hosting parties on the New York City subways or performing African Dance around the city, Amy can be found at one of her favorite cafes, writing, writing, and writing some more.  She also loves to travel, cook, and collaborate with other artists.  In the summer of 2009 Amy went on a solo backpacking exhibition through Europe, giving readings in Dublin, Ireland, meeting artists at La Biennale di Venezia in Venice, Italy, and learning Catalan dancing in Barcelona, Spain.

While Amy has performed in New York and abroad, “American Woman” is her first official tour, and it has been planned around national parks, sustainable ecosystems, and artist communities in the United States for the summer of 2010.

    Amy! Just called you but you didn’t pick up, think you might be on the road already! Saw your blog the other day and was thinking about it this morning as I was worrying about everything that an artist worries about (aside from art). It’s really inspiring to see you thinking out of the box and coming up with fun ways to get your art out there. It reminds me that that side of being an artist doesn’t have to be as nerve-wracking as I make it out to be. Have a great trip!

    amy your doing what you love and your doing in darn well. you have come on so much. each round of poetry is as better as the next. you are honing a talent and someday we’ll see you near the whitehouse, living on a street where well known poets hangout in a secluded cafe shop discussing the marvels of poetry in the 21st century.

    she smiled.
    the rain came and went.
    she smiled.
    the sun looked through the clouds and she smiled.
    she stood outside her house, all ready for sam.
    sam came. she put on her lipstick in his car as he drove her away.
    “im so happy” she said.
    sam concentrated on the road and mumbled.
    “i mean why cant he just get a bus from the airport?” she frowned.
    she had told him that he was a friend and he was gorgeous.
    “do you like him or somethin?”
    “sam you are my only one” she put her hand through is bushy hair and he giggled like a newborn.
    “sam youll love him. he’s irish and his name is peter”
    Amy and sam were picking up peter from new york jfk.
